All About Mrs. Wagaman

My name is Mrs. Wagaman and I am a first grade teacher.  This is my fourteenth year teaching first grade here at Orange Grove.  I graduated from the University of Iowa in 2003 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.  I received my Master's Degree in reading and literacy from Walden University in 2006. 
I am originally from Rockford, Illinois.  My husband's name is Josh.   We are expecting our first child this April.  We are having a little girl!  But our first baby will always be our sweet Springer Spaniel named, Lolli.  In my free time I like to spend time at the beach, watch movies, read, and jog.  I love working with children and grew up wanting to teach because my mom was a first grade teacher for almost 30 years. I absolutely love my job and could not imagine doing anything else.
