That's me- Maria. I'm 27 and live in South Jersey with my husband and new fur-baby, Lacey. This is my 6th year teaching, 5th year teaching ESL, 4th year in my district. I didn't major in education; I got my certification through the alternate route program, which was a great option for me. I have taught French, Basic Skills, and ESL, and I'm currently working on my 2nd master's in administration.
This is us on our recent trip to Maine. We had a great time in Kennebunkport and Freeport. My husband and I met our freshman year of college and have been together ever since.
This is Lacey, giving us her "What do you mean that's not a toy?" look. She's a work in progress!

If You Weren't a Teacher, What Would You Want to Be?

What's Your Favorite Resource in Your TPT Shop?
Whatever the newest is! But I'm really proud of my Diary series- I work so hard on those babies and my students LOVE them- they ask, "When can we read another diary?"
|This is an old picture- there are now 10 diaries in the series.|
Something You Might Not Know About Me:
I'm left-handed. I think I speak for all persons of handedness when I say we have a hard time writing on the board. My left pinky is covered in ink by the end of every day.
