I spent 15 years as working as a digital editor, journalist, and contributing writer for a ton of print and online media outlets. But after spending time volunteering in classrooms, homeschooling our youngest son and tutoring students, I figured out I loved getting kids fired up about reading, writing, and learning new things.
My son decided to test the waters again in school, it was time for me to think about what I want to be when I grow up. My husband shared his wish for me: “Do something that fills your heart and brings you joy.”
I’m now a teacher-in-training, prepping to inspire middle schoolers about English Language Arts (and maybe Spanish on the side).
