Story
Tagline
..what a former teacher and her two little ones do in lieu of preschool!
Introduction
In lieu of sending my two children to preschool (4 year old Luke and 3 year old Lilah), these are some of the things we do to stay active and learning.  

I'm a certified K-6 elementary school teacher with a masters in K-12 reading education. I currently hold National Board Certification in Early and Middle Childhood Literacy: Reading-Language Arts. I've been a stay at home mom for four years now. I love reading blogs, reading books on my Kindle, writing, family time, teaching and tutoring, watching L&L take in their world, cooking (but not cleaning up), shopping on Amazon.com, and vacationing on the island of Ocracoke. :)
