After graduating college I felt like my life had a clear path. Teaching is one of the only careers that you can actually major in and know exactly what you are going to do for potentially the rest of your life.
I was fortunate to get a job right after graduating and taught special education for three years in Otsego, Michigan. I enjoyed my job, my coworkers, and loved living with and near friends in Grand Rapids.

I wanted to share some of the things I have been loving this month! Read More
