About Me





Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I'm the Frugal Teacher Mama- or Valerie. I have been married since 2003 to Alan and we have three wonderful kids. After my first was born, I decided to go back to school and majored in Early Childhood Education. I graduated with my Associate's Degree in June 2007 and recently graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in May 2012. I love working with children, and am now teaching children in a small group settting.

I started this blog to have a place to blend all the different hats I wear. I am frugal by nature (thanks to my mom and grandma) but also by necessity. Though we no longer  live on one income, it is still a challenge to balance the budget each month, especially now that childcare and student loans are a factor. I love that my job enables me to both worth with children, but spend time with my own. I am also a volunteer for my daughter's Girl Scout troop, so being surrounded by children is normal for me :) 

I started this blog at first to kind of document my journey through school, as well as share the money-saving methods I used to get by. Now I plan to continue that as well as talk about the projects I am working on around the house or with my children, apply what I have learned about education through life experiences and classes, review my favorite products, host giveaways for my readers, and just have fun sharing my life with you. If you want to get to know me more, my personal blog is here.
