A Big Hello!

My name is Lisa and this is my 19th year in the classroom.  I spent 7 years teaching 6th grade at a middle school and have been teaching 4th grade at a rural elementary school for the past 12 years.  I began my career with a Degree in Business Administration, working in a bank.  I decided after a few years of banking, the business world was not for me.  I took a deep breath  and headed back to college.  I have never looked back.  Besides my teaching degree, I have earned  a Masters of Education and I'm half-way through my Ed.S, (Specialist Degree), in education. 
I have been married for over 26 years and have three teenage children, (yes, any sympathy is appreciated).  I have a 20 year old son in college majoring in engineering and16 year old twins, a boy and a girl.  They are all very active and I feel my age trying to keep up with them.  I decided to take off a few years when they were young and stay home with them.   I feel it was a good decision.  But, as soon as the twins were in Pre-K, I went back to the classroom.
I love teaching!  My family can't understand how I can work long hours during the week, then come home and spend the week-end creating and re-creating lesson plans and activities.
Although I am extremely excited and nervous about beginning this blog,  I look forward to this experience.
