“They will forget what you said.

They will forget what you did.

But they will NEVER forget

the way you made them feel"

 -Maya Angelou


For me, this isn’t a pretty set of words in a cliché frame on the wall.  This is something I heard over two decades ago and wrote on the front of my planner in giant black marker because it summed up my entire philosophy.  Then, I wrote it again the next year, and the next and the next. I read it every day, out-loud, to remind myself that I am not just educating, I am interacting with a child that will believe about themselves whatever I tell them. That is not a task that should ever be taken for granted.


I am a daughter, a wife, and a mother of three (one adult, one in college, one heading to high school).  We have a dog and a cat and live in a little cottage on a lake. We enjoy just hanging at home, as “lake life” is new for us.  When we do get away it is ALWAYS to the coast.  I love reading Christian/inspirational popular nonfiction but spend much of my time surfing the web for random educational trivia, classroom hacks, and trends in pedagogy research.  I believe there is truly nothing more amazing on this earth than the spirit of a child.  


I hope these words offer a positive glimpse into who your child will be spending the better part of their day with.  I cannot wait to hear each of their stories and help them add a new chapter to who they will become.  I look forward to our partnership and a terrific year together!
