About Me

Hello!  My name is Patti  and I live in Illinois. I have many years of experience teaching primary grades, being a webmaster, and a few of being a building technology coach, so I thought I would start a blog to share ideas and tips for....well...anyone! :)  I am a casual person...laid back...down-to-earth, so my blog will be the same...with a little humor tossed in.  You are welcome to leave your email to get updated posts.  I won't use it for anything else.

I have three children of my own.  My daughter attends Illinois State University (my alma mater!), a son who attends Northern Illinois University, and a son in high school.  I am a hockey mom and spend a lot of time around rinks. I am also a HUGE Chicago Blackhawks fan because I am only 2 hours away from the city.  I love going to the Madhouse on Madison to see the Hawks play...although I long to get out of the nosebleed section someday:)!!!  Wink, wink Patrick Sharp #10....help me out!

I spend my summers traveling.  I love to visit beaches all over the U.S. with Destin, FL being my favorite so far.  I like to find neat things to bring back to remind me of the warmth when it is zero here on the prairie!  It is my hope to retire there someday.  

Lastly, I  have a twin sister.  She is not a teacher, but we live in the same town.  I thought I would post my first day of kindergarten a long, long time ago.  I have loved school ever since!
