Denise in entering her 20th year in the educational field. Although her role has changed, her title of “teacher” has remained. She has taught 3rd and 5th grades, been a curriculum writer, as well as a county-based and school-based, elementary mathematics resource teacher.
Denise’s undergraduate degree is in Early Childhood Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She has a Reading Teacher Certificate from Towson University and an Admin I Certificate from Goucher College. Denise has her Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Elementary Science from Loyola University.
Many Messy Blessings was created after the birth of Denise’s twin boys. She found herself constantly in search of practical ideas for her 2.5-year-old daughter and felt that many cute ideas were unrealistic for the typical family. It seemed like her Pinterest Boards and Facebook feed were both telling her to start sharing the practical ideas she found.
