About Me

 I am Joan, 

wife to the man of the house,

mom to older daughter

and noodle. 

Tater and Mr.Dumbles are our cats

and Chloe and Zoe, our two corgi sisters, rule the house.

I teach 7th grade English to brilliant, rowdy, amazing, challenging 13 year old people.

We live happily in a rural subdivision north of OKC and south of Guthrie. The military and college brought me to Oklahoma and as I fell in love with an Oklahoma boy, I fell in love with Oklahoma. 

In May of 2010 I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I decided immediately to respect how powerful the disease was, but to fight with all I have for remission. I think (as of 8/2010) I might be getting there.
