Thursday Thirteen #3 - About me

Thirteen Things you may or may not know about me

1. I am a Montessori teacher with an Infant/Toddler credential. I have been working at my current school for 5 years now. When we moved to our new building I got to setup our very first infant room.

2. I love turtles!! I have been collecting them since I was a young child. I’ve been working on collecting turtles from all over the world. I’ve got turtles from Nepal, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Ireland, Vietnam, etc. I even have a turtle fossil that is more than 35 million years old.

3. Our house is a zoo. We have two cats, two rats, several fish and of course two turtles (Zach and Rudy). We’re also taking care of the classroom bunny for the summer. My son wants another kitten. I think we have enough pets, thank you.

4. I believe it is our responsibility to be an advocate for our children and all the children of the world.

5. I am a Girl Scout leader and troop organizer for our school.

6. I’m a Christian and am a member of the Disciples of Christ church. I honor all beliefs and believe this world would be a much better place if all of us could only be more tolerant.

7. I was born in Los Angeles, Calif., raised in Georgia and have spent most of my adult life in Northern Calif. Even though I have lived most of my life in Calif. I still consider myself a Georgia Peach girl.

8. It took us four years to get pregnant with Kristin, but only two months to get pregnant with Ian.

9. My best vacations have been camping with my family and being out in the middle of nowhere. I remember one time when we were in the Ruby Mountains, the fields were covered in flowers and we didn’t see a single soul for several days. Now that is heaven on earth.

10. My family is my number one priority and I would do anything for them.

11. I love candles, baths and listening to Miles Davis.

12. I’m also a Creative Memories and a BeautiControl consultant.

13. I miss my dad so very much.

Turtles are pretty unappreciated, I think.
