My name is Marie and I live in Northern Virginia with my new and wonderful husband, Rob. We were married June 23, 2012, though we have been friends since college.
We moved to the DC metro area in July 2010, and we recently purchased a starter home in a Northern Virginian suburb right before our wedding. We adopted a dog named Loki 2 years ago, and he is currently our spoiled little brat (see below):
Though I taught for the last two years with Teach For America at a low-income public school in Southeast DC, I now teach Chemistry and Honors Chemistry to 10th graders in Northwest DC at a high performing low-income charter school. Last year I finished my Masters in Teaching for Secondary Chemistry Education at American University, and before that I received my MS in Forensic Science and Law from Duquesne University.
I love cooking and baking, decorating our new home and DIY crafts, which I discovered my love for while planning our wedding. That was just a little bit about me, now back to the blog!
