{about me}

Hey there!  I'm Rachel.

that's me!

Things I Love:
my husband. 
my job. 
being outside. 
bright colors. 
the NC State Fair.
being a Girl Scout. 
watching Jeopardy.
Thin Mint ice cream.
fun fonts. 
freshly grown produce. 
apple products. 
my chi hair straightener. 
snail mail. 
being Southern. 
gerbera daisies. 
pink lemonade.

I teach 7th grade language arts in a somewhat rural area in central NC.  I am always exploring ways to make my classroom more engaging and my lessons more meaningful.  I love using music, hands on activities, and technology.  Currently, I'm looking at flipping my classroom and beginning to use reader/writer workshop.

I live with my husband in a cute little house that we are trying to improve a little while saving for a "forever house".  I have an amazing mom and a fantastic brother (who will be a teacher too!).

the family at my brother's graduation... Go NCSU Wolfpack!

During the summer I work at a camp (just part time now) and help run the climbing tower.  It's 55 feet of awesomeness!

This blog is a lifestyle blog, where I chronicle my daily adventures being married, cooking, teaching, and running an etsy shop.  


Thanks for visiting!
