Hey guys! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to learn a little bit about me!
My name is Michelle and I am a teacher, a sister, a daughter, a wife, a mother, and a dog lover! My biggest accomplishment and proudest "product" to date is my beautiful son Nicolas "Nico" Scott..... I mean, look at that face....
I could literally post a million more pictures and none of them would do him justice!
People always ask me how I do it...how do I work full time, commute (I drive quite far each day), and still manage to find time to work on Teachers Pay Teachers....and my answer is simple....Nico! I do it ALL for Nico.....everything I do is for him!
I should probably also mention my fabulous husband. We started dating when I was only 20 years old and since then have spent over a decade making some pretty awesome memories.
Oh, and my other two loves....Bella and Skye! They're twin yorkies and weigh a combined total of 9 pounds!
I'm a Long Island girl through and through. I've lived here my whole life, minus a short stint in Queens when I first got engaged. I went to elementary school, high school, undergrad and grad school all on Long Island. I graduated from Adelphi University with my Bachelors Degree in English Literature and Masters Degree in Childhood Education.
I started my teaching career in general education. I begin in 4th grade before transitioning to kindergarten....and boy oh boy was that a transition! But I quickly realized that I absolutely ADORED the little ones and lower elementary was the place for me! I spent the next 6 years in kindergarten and first grade general education. Then an opportunity came my way, thanks to a fabulous prior principal, but it required me to make the leap to special ed. By this point I was pregnant and my Mama Bear hormones were kicking in big time, and I thought ......there is nothing I would rather do than provide love, support and encouragement to learning disabled and struggling students. So here I am now, providing student support services to 1st and 2nd grade. That's one of my favorite things about teaching. There is always room to grow and change, and there are always opportunities to switch things up, as I've done in the past. I've worked on Long Island, the Bronx and I am now in Brooklyn.....and I don't know where my future teaching career will take me, but I do know that I am going to soak it all up, learn as much as I can from these kids, and do my best to share it all with you!
Thanks again for stopping by!!
