Welcome to my blog!
Hi! My name is Reyna. I was born in Chicago, Illinois but spent most of my life in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I now live on the East side of Michigan.
I am a daughter of two immigrant parents so that has definitely shaped the way that I see things. My parents are from Greece and the Philippines so growing up multiethnic and speaking other languages has impacted my beliefs and views on the world. I also am the oldest of four girls.
I have been with my partner for 8 years. We met in college and have been through a lot of life experiences together. We have a daughter who is 6 years old who is a lot of fun. Her life goal is to be a candy chef:)
I have a degree in Elementary Education and English. I taught for several years in different teaching settings- being an interventionist for Kindergarten through Fifth Grade, working with English Language Learners and Cognitively Impaired children, substituting in Spanish Immersion, and teaching Second Grade. After awhile my heart was not into teaching full-time so I quit so I could spend more time with my daughter and also try to see if there were other career options that would work for me.
Being an INFJ, I really enjoy helping people but as an introvert full-time teaching was way too stressful for me. I find that blogging really helps me to connect with people and also gives me the opportunity to impart some knowledge with like-minded people. Through blogging and blogging communities I am able to share, learn, and grow.
This blog is a compilation of my life thoughts, beliefs, and experiences. Thank you for your interest in my blog. I look forward to connecting with you!
