I have been teaching for 17 years (though I took several years off in the middle to be home with my kids before they were in school). I recently changed roles from a classroom teacher to an Intervention Specialist. I love this role because I get to work one on one or with small groups of students to help build their skills. I am married and have 3 boys, 2 in high school and one in 8th grade. My weekends are spent watching soccer games and watching the high school band wherever they are performing!
