I am in my last year of the Elementary Education program at Iowa. I am excited and nervous to become a teacher, and I am always looking for advice from experienced teachers. I love to paint, but I never seem to have time to produce new pieces. I started embroidering and I have fallen in love. I had a bearded dragon named Evelyn Rose (she is close to a foot long), but sadly she passed away this December. I love animals so much, and I understand that death happens no matter what…but losing Evie has been extremely difficult and it will be quite some time before I get a little pug. I also have a bizarre obsession with garden gnomes, but I only have one in my collection thus far….
