About Me

I remember playing school with my cabbage patch kids back inthe '80s. It was just something I knew I was going to do. As I went through High School I had to deal with my parents divorce, like many other children have to deal with. My senior year of school, when I was to be deciding on colleges, I didn't care about it. My goals took a back seat to hiding my sadness and broken heart over my parents divorce.  I went to the local community college for 2 years, transferred to a 4 year college, but did not last. I dropped out of the 4 year university within the first semester. I returned home, and had to move back in with my mom. I ended up getting pregnant with my oldest son. I found a job, a few jobs, and I worked. I worked harder than I ever had before. However, my lifestyle was outspending my pay. Luckily in 2006, I met my husband. He's been the only father my oldest son has ever known. After having 2 more children, we finally got married! :)

I got hired in 2007 for the local school system working in a clerical position in human resources. I loved my job. I loved my co-workers. Something was still missing. After I had my 3rd child, my husband encouraged me to follow my dream of teaching. I went back to school. The fastest way for me to get done, was to get my undergrad in sociology and go through a masters of arts in teaching program (which was a 1 year program). I was able to work while finishing my undergrad degree. Then once I graduated with my undergrad degree, I immediately started my masters. I had to take a leave of absence from my position in HR so I could complete the student teaching, which was a requirement. It was a bittersweet time in my life. I loved and still love those people I worked with, however I knew that I wanted to teach. So I took the plunge. I went without an income for 9 months. Which was very difficult!! But we did it, and I pray everything for the blessings and opportunities that God has brought to me.

I have blamed a lot of my hiccups in life on my parents divorce, and I am dealing with that. However, if I would have not have taking the journey I have walked on, I would not be where I am today. If you would have told me 8 years ago that all this was going to happen, I would have never believed you!! :) But I wouldn't change a thing!!


In May of 2016 I surprisingly found out I was pregnant with my 5th child, a boy, and he was born December 15, 2016. How perfect, right?!?! A,B,A,B,A order :) He brought so much light and love to our lives. I returned back to work from maternity leave in March. I received a call on May 4th the my baby was not breathing when my daycare lady went to get him up from his nap. When emergency personnel arrived, they called his time of death. It has been the worst nightmare, burying my perfectly healthy, beautiful, happy baby boy. He died at the age of 4 1/2 months, or 140 days from SIDS. I didn't smoke, I breastfed, he wasn't pre-mature. May 4th and the days shortly after, play on a constant cycle in my brain. If you care to read more about that journey--this is my personal blog about that-- HERE. I have to say that the only thing that has gotten me through is the love and strength from my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. My family and friends have also been there for me at my darkest moments.

If you are ever at a point in your life, asking yourself, "WHY, dear Lord?" Remember, he has a plan, and it will be blessed. Keep your faith :)

God Bless xoxo
