I am Elle, and I enjoy spending time with my husband and three adorable dogs. As a career, I am a special education teacher at a middle school, which I absolutely love! I have a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism with a minor in Sociology and a master’s degree in Education with a focus in Special Education. I have a passion for all 11080802_1647710085447789_4275874826395353443_othings creative. Writing, reading, photography, movies, drawing, and (yes) even lesson planning.

I live in the breathtaking state of Arizona, which I moved to three years ago from Ohio. Honestly, before living here I never even thought of it as a state. After the years I have spent here, I doubt I could ever live anywhere else. On the more serious note, I have lived with anxiety most of my life and there will be occasions where I post about my victories and frustrations with it. I hope that by doing so I can help break down the barriers and misconceptions surrounding anxiety. Everyday I work hard to not let it get in the way of living fully and experiencing the adventures that are found between one sunrise to the next.

  1. Thank you for the difference you make being a special education teacher! I am a paraprofessional for a middle school & work with high & low functioning autistic kids. I share a powerful interaction I had with a student on day 13 Oct 23 of my blog:)
