I am so excited to join with hundreds of other bloggers in Lisa's One World One Heart give-away event this year! I commenting on several blogs last year but did not have my own blog to participate. The first give-away starts January 19th and whoever leaves a comment can enter to win. You must leave an e-mail or blog address in the comment, so I can contact you if you win! If you click on the badge you can find out all the details and e-mail Lisa if you want to be a part of this. She was featured in Somerset's Artful Blogging magazine and the interview gives all the background about this awesome extravaganza. In December, I made my very first necklaces from the many charm swaps I've been involved in. I gave several as gifts, but I have one left so I think I'll start with my Fabulous Flowers charm necklace as my first give-away. Remember to check back on January 19th to begin leaving comments to enter to win!
I have a degree in Child Development and have been teaching for 25 years. Most of these years have been spent with second graders with the exception of 4 years in first grade. I love introducing my students to the joy of reading "chapter books" and the language of literature.
I am a mixed-media artist and am lucky to be teaching at a fine arts magnet school. I use music and visual art every day in my classroom.
I have been married for 29 years and my husband teaches High School English. I have raised 4 wonderful kids and am still working on the yellow labs that live in our house.
