Hi, I’m Katie!

I’m a wife, teacher, and mom to two sweet little ones. I teach special education preschool where there is never a dull moment or a full box of tissues.

I hold a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education, but the real training didn’t begin until I held my first child in my arms. And ever since, I’ve learned more about child development through life as a parent than in all my years teaching combined.

I write about positive parenting, education, the daily messes, and all the reasons why I call motherhood the best job I’ve ever known.

Some fun facts about us:

  1. My husband and I are high school sweethearts and we married in the summer of 2014.
  2. We love the mountains, hiking, fishing… anything that gets us outdoors.
  3. My husband is a paramedic in a busy 911 area.
  4. When our children are old enough, we will likely be a homeschooling family (I will probably write about the reasons why at some point or another).
  5. A glass of wine and writing are my coping mechanisms.
  6. We love God and each other, above all else.

Thanks for stopping by!
