About Me

Hello my name’s Annie Clifton.

I'm a mom and blogger. I have 2 kids that are now in college, and I am a teacher working at a high school.

I love kids’ education and I think I know a bit about kids, so I decided to create this blog, which is dedicated to kids’ education, parenting, frugal living (because we had to tighten the belt a few years ago) and general lifestyle bits and pieces.

I hope you have fun checking out my blog
