42 Ways You Know You're a Qkids Teacher

My name is Rebecca Frostad, and I am a 36-year-old married mother of one precocious near-2-year-old. I just immigrated to Canada, where my husband is from, and we have settled in the expansive prairies. I have been teaching with Qkids for a year and a half, and it has been an exciting and growing experience. I hope that my posts will be something that readers can find amusing, enlightening, and relatable. Enjoy!
