For the past twelve years, I’ve been an elementary school teacher. And for the past few months, I’ve been a mother. As the end of my maternity leave draws to an end, I find myself wishing I’d documented the time in more than just pictures. Over the years as a teacher, I often wished I had reflected more on my classroom experiences. And so now, a blog. A place where I can share the lessons learned in the classroom, from my daughter, and trying to find balance in it all.
