About Me

Hello! My name is Kelli and I am attempting to create a blog that shares ideas I come across as I travel through various classrooms and also go forward in my quest to get the concept of K-2 journals into American classrooms. I also love all the teaching ideas I come across on Pinterest and the various teaching blogs!

I am from Phoenix, Arizona but stumbled across my love of traveling and working/living abroad about 7 years ago. Since then, I've had an amazing time working in various places, spending time with family and friends (new and old), finishing my masters, gaining teaching experience in a variety of classroom settings, encouraging my soldier through 3 deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan and now we are recently married in London and living here as well.....what a busy, unexpected, blessed life!



Read about my teaching ideals and what I've learned from teaching in 3 countries here.


Living abroad/Traveling: I love finding my way around a new city, living with amazing flatmates, learning about the culture, finding new teaching techniques and learning a lot about myself (lonely at times, but shows you that you're stronger than you think! Wouldn't trade it for anything!)

My blog about life, getting married, things I like, travel etc is here.


 My sweetheart, who I am convinced was made just for me:

He is South African (love that accent!), and just recently finished 7 years in the British Army. I will have to take some time another day to write the story of how we met (in a hostel in London!) and stayed together all this time against many odds : )  He is a true gentleman, loves God, others and adores me! Very thankful he loves supports my passion for teaching : )

I would love to hear from you!
