About Me....

Hi! I'm Melissa Jean....

I’m a mother of 4, from New York, living in Florida for the past 18 years! I’ve been a teacher for the Brevard County school district for many years, mostly in VPK, and I am now working as a Head Start Instructional Coach. I LOVE what I do. I have been able to work in schools my own children attended and have been a part of their educations’. It is important to me to be my children’s biggest educator. I believe by giving access to the real world around us I can help them connect to natural motivation and curiosity to expand their own learning.

As a single mama, it is a challenge to enjoy my family at home. There is always a sport to attend, practice to get to, house to clean, something to do…. the list never ends. I find we get the best quality family time by getting OUT! And enjoying the places around us. My budget is always limited. Our day trips are often planned and executed with a lot of thought infused. I have planned many itineraries and shared with friends and colleagues to help them save money while making great memories. And so this blog is more of a hobby and lifestyle than anything else.
