About Me

I’m Carrie Baughcum…momma, wife, indecisive, mismatch sock wearer, word slinger, illustrator, digital artist, inspiration junkie, learning enthusiast, Special Education teacher and  idea sharer.

Three years ago my friend thought it would be a great idea to start a blog together.  With a deep breath and fear that all the weirdos in the world would start stalking me or come to my house and kidnap my children we started blogging together and Laverne was born. Under this new found anonymity I began to write as Laverne. The more I wrote, the more people I met.  The more wonderful, kind and amazingly caring people I met the braver I got. The braver I got the more confident I became…and suddenly I had found my voice I never knew I had.

Today I have stepped out from behind my anonymity to share the voice as a mother, wife, woman and Special Education teacher.  I  am the proud editor in chief, founder, CEO, writer, head designer and director (you name it…I’m it) of carriebaughcum.com where  I word sling and draw about motherhood, marriage, life and share my voice as a passionate special education teacher who believes  that all students can learn, we just need to find the right way!

You better hold on to your chairs kids…this is going to be fun! I really do think life and learning are pretty Heck Awesome!

  1. Hi Carrie,

    My name is Jessica and I’m the Community Manager for Raise.com. Raise is an awesome new marketplace to buy and sell gift cards on the web. With the extra money you can save on discount gift cards to your favorite brands, you can spend more on the things you love.

    We’re running an interactive campaign called, “Give Yourself a Raise,” about the importance of rewarding yourself for all the hard work you put in every day. We know how much work being a mom can be, and we want to focus on the importance of taking time out for you! Whether it be something as simple as indulging in your favorite dessert, or buying a new pair of shoes, we want to hear about it!

    We would love if you could create a post on your blog about how you reward yourself, in hopes that it sparks a fun conversation with your readers! Also we will be featuring our favorite blog posts on our Facebook and Twitter accounts! With close to 45,000 Facebook and Twitter followers, we will be giving your website ample face time with a whole new audience! We want this to be a fun way to interact with your readers, as well as connect with new ones!

    Let me know if this is something you would be interested in!
