Well, hello there!

I’m Stacey.  By day I teach middle school music in a small town.  At night (and sometimes very early in the morning) I’m building my business empire which includes, this blog, my podcast, and one-on-one coaching for fellow educators.

But my biggest, most fun, and most important role is that of mom to my amazing little girl.  My life changed the day she came into it, and while there have certainly been tough times, she inspires me to be the best I can be.

About Stacey

When I first started Creating My Happiness it was actually part of a failed attempt at direct sales.  And though my foray into network marketing didn’t work out, one good thing that came out of it was this blog, a little piece of my heart.

I have B.S. in Music and a B.A. in Education from the University of Connecticut and have been teaching music to kids of all ages for 15 years, focusing on middle school for the vast majority of that.  (No, I’m not crazy.  I just love my crazy kids!)  I continued on to get my M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction and an advanced certificate in Educational Leadership.  Will I ever make the leap into administration?  Only time will tell.

You see, plans tend to change when you have a child.  They change even more when that child comes into the world 8 weeks early.  These days I’m less interested in the latest educational theory than I am in potty training, and whether or not to sneak veggies into my daughter’s food.

It brings me great joy to share little bits of my life and (hopefully) help people create a little more happiness in theirs.  Here you’ll find tips and tricks for making your life simpler, recipes, and a few stories along the way.
