All About Mrs. Wagaman

My name is Mrs. Wagaman and I am a first grade teacher.  This is my sixteenth 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 have a precious baby girl named, Rose.  We also have sweet a Springer Spaniel named, Hope.  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.
