Specifics: I am a young mom. I like to say I'm young, because it makes me feel better about having a grown adult child living on his own and another in the throws of high school.

I also have two step children, whom I am growing to love. Being a step-parent is one of the most challenging aspects of my life. Sometimes the bounderies get blurry. I sometimes find myself getting jealous. Not jealous of them, but jealous of the fact that my husband had these wonderful children with another woman, and that we will never have children of our own together. With that being said, I work very hard to make sure that his children know that I love and care for them as if they were my own. That I am there for them too. In this way, they are mine.

The man I am married to is the love of my life. He makes me laugh everyday. I feel so blessed to have this man in my life. He is like a prayer that I released, memorized and like a mantra repeated over and over until God finally answered it.

I have lived many lives in my almost fourty-four years. I have been a daycare worker, assisted living assistant, special education para, student, and now currently a teacher. I also did a small stint as a temp receptionist. I have experienced many disapointing and frustrating life events, from diviorce, to job loss, and raising children through their own frustrations and disapointments. These events and their consequences have shapped me and my opinions. I would not call myself an expert on any one thing. It is my opinion that if you call yourself an expert, the universe will come in and knock you down a few pegs. None of us are experts, we are all just pretenders. Children playing at being adults.

This blog is intended to be a place for me express my thought, share important information, and reach out to others. I look forward to getting to know all of you. Happy blog trolling.

    Moving Beyond Non-Renewal

    18 months ago

    Being non-renewed as a teacher was the lowest point in my teaching career. I became deeply depressed. My self-esteem was brought to an all time low. Moving beyond it has become my mission.
