I am Margo Buser (Sistek), I wake up to the sounds of my 8 and soon to be 10 year old sons racing down the stairs to eat breakfast so they can have 15 minutes to play mine craft before going to school. My dogs wagging their tails excited to begin another day of playing in the sun and napping on the couch. My almost 13 year old son sometimes pleasantly occasionally curtly asking "mom where are my _____, I NEEEEED them!". Then I knock and open the door to my 16 and soon to be 15 year old daughters room and start singing the wake up song "good morning good morning gooooood mooooorning, it's time to rise and shine, good morning good morning goooood mooooorning, I hope you're feeling fine, get up get up get out of bed wake up wake up you sleepy head, it's time to start a brand new day hey hey hey hey!!. It's their favorite, they just don't know it yet. The weekends are spent running around to whatever sporting, theater, or social event they have signed up for. The summers are filled with road trips, hikes, and lazy days by the lake. In the winter we spend most of the time up on the slopes getting our edges carved as perfectly as we can into the side of a beautiful white mountain top. The days are never boring. If I get a call or text to meet friends for cocktails or coffee I am there. A stack of books waiting for me to read them can be found on my dresser. My running shoes are waiting to be tied on and taken out for a jog. A passport safely in a drawer waiting for its next stamp, still reveling in the amazing time we had in Thailand. Dream vacation with my love doesn't even begin to describe the incredible experience we had. I believe life is best full of laughter, friends and family.
After the morning drop off I make my way to work. I'm in my 13th year as an educator. Some of those years were spent in the classroom and others in small groups in the back of a library. I could be found teaching and researching at the university and before that instructing with a canvas at my side. I love education, it's a passion and a very important part of my life. Getting my Masters degree was a huge goal and one that I am exceedingly happy I accomplished. Writing and teaching writing are both something I am passionate about. I love to see students learn how to express themselves in words and feel that sense of accomplishment. I'm excited for the next fun challenge in my career in education.
