Welcome and thanks for taking the time to visit this Hip Teacher Mama site. I appreciate your interest and if you have a moment, please follow me here, Facebook, and Instagram.
I am a busy mom of three little girls in Markham, Ontario, Canada. I love my Toronto Raptors and Blue Jays, dining out, travelling, shopping, hot yoga, kickboxing, and scrapbooking. I love Date Nights at the movies, binge-watching good tv, and reading mysteries and chick-lit. This blog is an opportunity to get my creative juices flowing again because marking projects and tests just aren’t the best way of putting pen to paper.
I started this blog in 2009 just after the birth of my first daughter. I kept it up five days a week with my weekend events, product reviews, educational commentary, healthy recipes, and a fun throwback video. It was an honour to do reviews for companies like Lamaze, Sweetpea Baby Food, Built NY, Applecheeks Cloth Diapers, and my favourite author, Karen Katz.
About a year later, I hit pause on my site when my baby became ill and I was pregnant with Daughter #2. Several losses and heartbreak later, Daughter #3 came at the end of 2014. Our family of five was now complete. I was enjoying my extended leave, meeting new mommy friends, attending baby classes, and becoming a professional mall walker when I was bit by the bug again and I knew it was time…Hip Teacher Mama was back!
