Welcome to my profile page. As a Hubpages Greeter I am a part of a volunteer team to greet new Hubbers! I love to get to know the writers here on Hubpages and am always excited to see the new talent first hand.

I was honored with being voted as Hubpages best teacher and most likely to become a Hubpages employee in Hubpages first ever Hubbie Awards in celebration of their 5th anniversary in August of 2011.

My earliest experience that I remember as a writer was in kindergarten. Our school had a young author's contest and each grade level was to choose one winner. I wrote a story about a witch and a little girl and ended up winning the contest for kindergarten. As I advanced in school, I continued to develop my writing. I wrote a sort of spin off of Alice in Wonderland called Allison in Wanderland and it won for sixth grade.

Writing has always been a passion of mine but as a mother of two young children, Grace 5 and Alex 3 and 1/2, and a full time elementary school teacher, life keeps me pretty busy.

I have taught second through fifth grades but my favorites are third and fourth. I have a love of children's literature in which I treasure sharing both with my own children and my students. I have several children's books in the works and hope that one day I will have them published.

I have many interests that when time allows, I try to pursue. I enjoy gardening during our Michigan summers, love spending time with my family, enjoy scrapbooking, reading, and writing. I also love traveling, especially throughout my great state of Michigan. You will find that these are many of the topics that I enjoy writing about here on Hubpages!

As a new hubber I was awarded a hubnugget award for my hub, A Lesson for the Teacher. Thank you to all those that voted. If you are not yet a member of Hubpages but would like to join this fantastic community of writers, don't waste any more time! You can join here. You can also find me on Google +.
