Who I Am

How to explain to a group of strangers who I am…

I am a mom- my sons are 19 and 21 and I miss them like crazy! They live in the US, one is a recent college graduate- yay, J! One is in his second year of university, yay, C!

I am a third grade teacher teaching at an international school just outside of Berlin, Germany. I love my class and my colleagues.

I am a learner- constantly reading and pushing myself in new directions. To me this is the best part of being a teacher, I can always improve myself and work better with my students. That is why I have joined ETMOOC.

I am in the club- The Nerdy Book Club, that is! I found this blog last year and it has helped me to read lots more and “meet” other teachers, librarians, authors, etc who love books as much as I do.

What else am I? A purple lover, chocolate fan, friend, cat owner, tech experimenter, but more than that, as we are all more than the sum of our parts.

Today I have finished reading Navigating Early- 5/5 stars! I have NOT finished the marking I need to finish for tomorrow, so I better get on that.

Who are you?
