My name is Marina and I am a 29 year old mother of two, wife of 10 years, and a college student. I absolutely adore my family!!! We have a 2 year old Chihuahua named Chino, which is short for Cappuccino. I have a new found passion for my new career in teaching and have 12 years prior work experience in the financial field. This blog has been created to share my journey as an elementary school teacher as well as host other educator’s ideas, knowledge, experiences, and advice.
