Every Day With The Northeast Girl


Tell us about yourself. My name is Maureen and while I've worn many hats over the past 33 years, what I think defines me right now would be that I'm a wife to Curtis, a mom to my 6 year old daughter, Ava, and while I've been teaching school on and off for the past 10 years, I currently work from home. I'm a military wife and right now we're living in Last Vegas, NV, where my husband flies with the United States Thunderbirds.

I have a super easy and fun project for you today! Seriously, it took us all of 5 minutes to complete this precious Christmas tile and I'll cherish it forever. We're even making a few extra for grandparents.

Holiday Teacher Gift Idea

Teacher Gift Idea // Every Day Cheer

To me, it is so much better to give than to receive. I am such a fan of giving gifts and so are my kiddos. So, naturally, they want to give their teachers gifts for all the holidays. Each year, I love to come up with a small, fun and cute teacher gift idea.
