I am from a small town in northern NJ, but moved to VA, after graduating college, to start my teaching career. I met my husband in VA and we have settled here along with our 3 boys, A, B, & C. I am a baseball mama and coach the Great Computer Challenge teams ( playing dual role of teacher/parent) at our school. You will occasionally see the boys or my husband on the blog or social media trying out something new or because I snuck into their classroom and took a picture (one of the perks of teaching where your kids go to school).
I started blogging in 2011. I am the sole blogger for Learning Ahoy, but I also blog with Virginia is for teachers. In addition, I collaborate with a group of special education bloggers under the name We teach Sped. I like to blog about the happenings in my classroom, but will also throw in the occasional money saving tip (I love going to garage sales, thrift stores, and finding ways to save money).
I started my Teachers Pay Teachers store around the same time I started blogging. All of the products I create are used in my classroom , so I know they are a hit with the kids! I tend to create a lot of games and activities to keep kids engaged and keep learning fun.
