I have home-schooled my children for more than 10 years and before that, I spent 13 years as a teacher in the public school system.. I have a BA in elementary education with a specialization in Early Childhood Education and an MA in Ed Leadership. I started school when I was 5. For the majority of my life I have been in education. My youngest graduated from high school in 2018 and I was finished with teaching (more or less). I remember chatting with a friend at the graduation who was in the same boat as I was. She was watching her youngest graduate from home-school along with me. We hugged with tears in our eyes, both so proud of who our children were, and yet lost with who we were at this point in life. We felt a loss of identity. I went home and began a new chapter in my life. Who am I? I’m a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend among many other labels. I plan to share in this blog my journey on, from who I was to who I am now. That changes daily. I hope my work here can be used to benefit others in their journey of life.
