My Fur Babies
Here's to wishing you a very happy and heartfelt "Hello!" I am Mrs. Rodriguez and I am originally from upstate New York. I have experience teaching students in grades pre-k, first grade, and fourth grade. This is my tenth year teaching in North Carolina and there's no other place I would rather call home than right here in Craven County. The United States Marine Corps, and the beach, are what brought and kept me here in NC. I live in Havelock with Mr. Rodriguez, our human children, a few fur-babies and also some water-babies. I am an alumni of Mansfield University, which is located in Northern Pennsylvania. Our school mascott is the Mansfield Mounty (mountaineer).I've earned my Master's Degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in children's literature. However, I've received the best education about teaching from my students!
I LOVE a day at the beach. I enjoy helping my children build sandcastles, catching sand crabs, searching for the "perfect" seashell to add to our collection, and boogie boarding in the ocean waves. I also enjoy taking our five fur-babies for a walk. Tucker-P, is a Cock-a-Poo. He is very posessive of his momma (me) and gets super jealous when the other dogs get too close. He likes digging enormous holes in our yard and playing with his stuffy named Sammy. Jasper is our Great Dane. He weighs 170lbs. but, he thinks he is a lap-dog. He will sit on your lap if you are on the sofa. He and Ryder are best buddies. Ryder is our Shiba-Inu mix. He is a rescue pup who has stolen our hearts. He is sweet and loves to cuddle. Oswald is our rescue pup that we bottle fed since he was two days old. He is spunky and full of energy. He is a lover who likes to lick your face all over! He thinks he is the boss of all the other dogs but, truly he is the smallest. He likes to get into mischief and his favorite thing to do is take things, from inside,out through the doggy door. Lily-Bit is our Great Dane puppy. She weighs about 90 pounds and is only nine months old. She is very hyper and her favorite thing to do is annoy all her fur-brothers. She is really good at it too!
BB, short for Butter-Buns, is our ferret. He is a mischievous little thing that is sneaky and just LOVES to get inside anything and everything. If he can climb into it, he will. He has to explore every corner, of everything, everywhere.
