I am a teacher. I have been teaching since I was 15 and started helping with swimming lessons. I knew then I was going to teach. I have been a classroom teacher for 12 years in middle school, high school and now the community college. I have taught speech, drama, journalism, English, and now I teach developmental reading and writing. They teach me too. There is more to being a teacher than what comes in your textbook. I am also a mom, a wife, and human. I love what I do and who I am. It has taken me years to get here. I still have a long way to go.
