Welcome to my blog! I am excited and nervous about starting this whole blogging thing! It seems like it would be so simple, but it's been very overwhelming to me. I think after I get a few posts under my belt I'll feel better so here we go...
I want to start by thanking a few people who have encouraged me: First, my husband who came up with my blog title (I love heels!), and for having a lot of patience with me, and my children who have given up hours of "mommy time" for me to start this blog. Mrs. Barnette, (I still call her that!) my fifth grade teacher, my mentor, and my children's teacher, who inspired me to be a teacher. Patti, my advisor and the one who "trained me to be a teacher", has encouraged me for years to pursue this-I'm finally doing it Patti! Judy, my stand in mom, my go to person, who is always there for me. Amber, who has been with me since the beginning of our teaching career and will be with me 'til the end, tests my ideas out and gives me positive feedback. Terri, who is a life long supporter and wants to someday be my manager. Sharron, for helping me with my blog set up, all my technology issues/questions, and making my cape! (Will be soon revealed!)
