I am Christina Borger and amongst other things, I am a full-day Kindergarten teacher in Cheshire, CT. I currently live in Wallingford, where I have lived my entire life. I was fortunate enough to live in Newport, RI where I attended Salve Regina University. I graduated with a BA in English Communications. I sure do miss living near the smell of sea salt, the sights of the mansions and sounds of life in the little city by the sea.
Without a clear vision of what to do with that English degree from a swanky university, I moved back home and began substitute teaching. It was perhaps the best transition back into real life following a college schedule. I set up the days I wanted to work, accepted and declined jobs as they became available and fell in love with being back in the classroom–only this time I was the teacher.
Back to school I went—this time to Quinnipiac University‘s Masters of Arts in Teaching program. Meanwhile, I worked and interned at a local elementary school in town. I grew to love the school community and was saddened to leave when I got hired in Cheshire.
I’ve loved and lost along the way. There are a lot of great almosts out there—-I am still waiting to find myself The One. I am probably a minority who still believes that the institution of marriage ought to be something not to be taken lightly. There should be no easy outs. Our grandparents did it—they made it work. Darnit! I can, too!
So, you might be wondering what you might find in this blog. There is no one, cookie-cutter answer to that. This will be made up of a menagerie of things from my dabblings as a fashionista-wanna-be to tales of kindergarten to some of life’s crazy adventures–both near and far. You might also follow my seemingly never-ending journey to finding (and keeping) love, here on the blog.
