Hello friends, I’m back!
Maybe some of you didn’t even notice I was gone or missed me, and that’s okay. But to any of you faithful followers out there (we see you and notice you), I’m back!
I took a break from writing for a short time this year while I had a lot of life changes I was dealing with. I gave birth to our third child in January, then moved to the state of Idaho later in the spring.
For those that don’t know my background, I originally grew up in Eastern Idaho but moved to Utah when I was 18 to attend school at Utah State University. This is where I met and married my husband, Colby. I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Language arts in 2016 and spent a lot of time substitute teaching in schools around Cache Valley after graduation. I obtained a long-term substitute teaching job in the spring of 2017 where I spent about 8 weeks teaching first grade.
For the next several years I became a mom and went back and forth with substitute teaching when and where I could. However, for the past three years, I’ve been honored to be a part of the HonorsGradU team working on this blog and scholarship. This job has brought me so many opportunities to meet many other educators and learn from them, as well as become incredibly inspired by our scholarship applicants.
I am absolutely honored to be back and writing again! I have great ideas and thoughts on new blog posts and series to write, so buckle up because here we go!
