I am a single mother of two teenage children. My kids have been the center of my life for the last ten years and as I get closer and closer to them being grown I struggle with my feelings. I teach English and ESL at the high school level. I have a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction and I am currently working on my certification to teach Dual Credit English. I would love to work with pre-service teachers on what it really looks like to be in a classroom. I love to travel and I will indulge in it as often as possible. I am unlucky in love and it seems it always gets me into trouble. Although I have already been married and divorced twice, I still hope to find that forever kind of happiness I deserve. I’m not really interested in getting married again but I would like to share my life with someone special. I use this blog as a therapeutic way to deal with motherhood and my relationships. I hope you are able to relate to my ramblings.
