Having the opportunity to teach at the same school as my mom has been so much fun! How many mother-daughter duos get the chance to do that?! My mom has always been an inspiration to me in many ways but especially teaching. I have grown up watching her and have hoped to be as impactful in my career as she has been in hers… I love that I get to actually experience what it is like to be a colleague of hers and learn and grow alongside her. Love you mom! 🙂 #school #schooliscool #teacher #teacherfun #teachercostumes #teachersofinstagram #kindergarten #thirdgrade #motherdaughter #lovemymom #inspire #halloween #halloween14
