    {DSC01907.JPG} Our fur babies! Ando and PennaWelcome to the fifth grade! Here's a little information about Ms. Herrit:
    My husband and I moved to Charlotte, NC four years ago from Orlando, FL. We are originally from Pittsburgh, PA though- born and raised Steeler/Pens fans.. just not fans of wintery weather and bitter cold days! So we took off for the sunshine state right out of college. In Orlando, I taught 6th grade Reading and Language Arts from 2008-2012. I did enjoy teaching in middle school, but I really love working at the elementary level. The faculty and students at JV Washam are so warm and welcoming and we have a lot of fun learning each day!
    In April of 2014, we welcomed little Avery Nicks into our lives! I'm sure I willI have many toddler stories to share with you this year!two fun, cute, little children of my own. My daughter, Avery, is 3 years old and my son, Evander, is 9 months old!
