Meet the Teacher..... 2014

Hello Friends,

I am linking up with my friends on Blog Hoppin for Teacher Week! Today is WHO.......... So, here is a little bit about me....

I married my best friend. We will be married 31 years in November and I can think of no other person with whom I would want to spend those years! 

We have 3 beautiful, kind, and smart kids... all grown up now, but they continue to be my daily joy.

My oldest son married his best friend and we are blessed to have her as a part of our family.

We own a farm, but live in town. My husband commutes to the farm - odd, I know, but this way of life has worked for us for 31 years! We have corn and soybeans and a small herd of Hereford cattle. That's my son this spring with one of our newborn calves.

I am sooo lucky to be able to spend time with BOTH my parents. This is a picture of my Mom and me when we were vacationing together in South Haven, Michigan. (I got my hair cut REALLY short this summer; still do not know how I feel about it.... )

I LOVE flowers! I inherited this love from my Mom and Dad..... This is a picture that I took of one of my Mom's sunflowers. Isn't it gorgeous?

I have always wanted to be a teacher... for as long as I can remember! I happen to have a picture of my first class......

Yep.... Two of those dolls are almost as old as I am and were my students when I was practicing my "student teaching" at 6 years old!

I actually do have a couple pictures of ME that show the longevity of my teaching career...... I haven't changed at all, have I? (smile)

This is a picture of me in our local newspaper YEARS ago when I received a grant for a listening center....... sigh............ I might still have that listening center somewhere......

So that's me in a nutshell......... Tell us about YOU and hop on over to Blog Hoppin and link up! We love to read "All About You!"

Until next time!
