Hi! Since I am now blogging and have to do (another!) introduction I might as well throw in something a little different than what I’ve done in the last twelve.
My husband and I, along with 60,000 of our closest friends, like to tailgate and go to the games whenever we can get the time. I also like to travel every chance I get! I’ve been to all but two states east of the Mississippi River plus Nevada and Texas.
I live in southern WV with my husband and two kids. My son is now a junior in high school. This spring he turned 16 and started driving, much to his mother’s displeasure! He plays tennis for the high school which keeps us both pretty busy in the spring.
My daughter is about to turn 10 and is starting her 5th year in competitive cheerleading – which keeps us all VERY busy from Sept – May!! We travel to cities throughout the US approximately every 4-6 weeks to compete. We’ve competed in 13 different states and she and her squad have won Overall National Champions the last 3 years in 3 different divisions. It can be extremely stressful, time-consuming, terrifying (she’s one of the kids being tossed around and hoisted in the air), competitive, exciting, and just plain fun all at the same time.
I teach Business Education classes at our local high school and love teaching my classes and students. This year I have chosen to work full time on my Master’s Degree and therefore decided to take an educational leave for the school year. Things haven’t quite worked out like I planned since I let a friend convince me to teach some classes at the community college this semester. So now I am taking 3 EDTECH classes and teaching 2 college classes. I’m hoping I can get things settled into a routine sooner rather than later because it’s a bit overwhelming right now.
I chose the EDTECH program because I feel it is perfect for me. I love technology and anything technology related! I have been searching for that perfect degree – the one that is something I am actually interested in, I can relate to my field, and I could do online to try to work into my schedule; I think this program fits the bill!!
Wish me luck with this new and exciting journey!
