Prior to coming to WMC, I taught 5th grade and Special Ed in Winslow, AZ, 9-12th grade and AP Literature in Edgerton, MN, and Special Ed at the Potter’s House in Grand Rapids. I spent a few years as a “house flipper” and discovered that bringing an old house back to life is rewarding but doesn’t happen as quickly or as easily as it does on HGTV. We added a puppy to our family and we are thoroughly enjoying that.
