A Reintroduction

Five years ago, I started this blog as an AP government teacher who wanted to share lessons so that other teachers could utilize the knowledge that I could gain at no cost. I am now and forever grateful for all the people who have supported that aspect of my life and the community it has built; however, I’ve noticed that in the last year or so, the blog itself has naturally taken on some changes because my life has changed.

In 2018 this blog was called: Teaching AP Government

In 2020 it change to Liz Evans, NBCT

And now, in 2023? Learning & Living with Liz

Instead of fighting that change, I’ve decided to shift the way I utilize this blog as my creative outlet and start sharing more things that bring me joy, including my family house, projects, cooking, and working on a doctoral degree. I thought about starting a whole new blog but then realized that I had put so much love and work into this one, and since it is mine, I can do what I want with it. So let me re-introduce myself.

Oh hi! I am Liz, a former social studies teacher who taught at public schools for 17 years. I currently work at a state university directing programs for civic education. I am married to Chris, the best person I know, making my life more manageable and fun. We have a daughter who just turned 12 and a golden retriever named Oliver, who is still a puppy but clocks in at 75 pounds. I work at home and in the office, so each day is different. I manage a chronic illness and love learning how to care for myself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I am an auntie to nine of my favorite people in the world. I love redoing parts of our home, baking, reading, and trying new creative outlets, although I have limited crafting abilities… According to my grandmother, it’s a good thing I’m smart. I love learning about myself and take a ridiculous amount of self-assessments.

Our life is complicated yet fun! My husband started his doctoral studies in August 2022, and I am starting in May 2023. Add to that two full times jobs, parenting a preteen and a puppy, and trying to maintain a social life, and it’s an adventure!
