I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education, a Master’s Degree in Computer Education, and a PH. Nothing in Parenting. I have taught children from preschool to 12th grade and beyond in both art and computer education. (OK, so the “beyond” part is really adults, but who’s keeping score here?) Trust me, when I say that ‘I am a “Jack of all trades” and master of absolutely nothing’- I literally mean it. It’s left brain meets right brain here!
At the moment, I have 4 children; a 5 year old, a 3 year old, an 21 month old and a 31 year old. They have all opened my eyes to what living truly is and are my inspiration. I really enjoy writing each and every blog post; for the crafts have brought me closer to my children and allow them to learn through creation and exploration.
I decided to semi-retire (take a break) from full-time teaching for a while after the birth of my last child. [But, just like Brett Farve and Michael Jordan, I’m sure I will be making a comeback sooner or later!] I am still somewhat active in the school that I semi-retired from: I run their Website and am a contracted technology trainer for the teachers. Until I return to teaching on a full-time basis, I will utilize the skills that I have acquired from my previous and present experiences to make sure that you, the parent, are a life-long learner. I will have to add that to my resume.
Classified Mom is a place where you can find art and crafts for moms and kids, tutorials on technology for women, Tuesday’s Giveaway Linkup, Website Spotlights, my views on parenting during Mom Moment Mondays, and the Sunday Showcase Linkup. I like a little variety, and my goal is to have a little something for everyone!
I hope that you enjoy my thoughts, opinions, projects, and knowledge (or lack thereof) and claim them as your own. I have a lot to share, and for the most part, am pretty good at the ‘taking turns’ concept. I love to hear from you, and your comments are my encouragement.
