Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog! My name is Maren, I’m the owner of the TpT-store Malimo Mode.
After working in insurance and IT for several years, I decided it was time to find my true path in life. In business, I had worked with adult education and I felt that was something I was good at. Teaching, explaining and encouraging.
I attended Høgskolen i Bergen (Bergen University College) and their study programme Teacher Education and Training 1-7. My bachelor’s degree was on the topic assessment for learning (as opposed to assessment of learning). I am currently an undergrad working on my master’s degree. This degree is focused on how continuously testing students will influence them. I strongly believe that excessive testing is detrimental to learning, and more importantly to their self-esteem and motivation.

I live with the man of my dreams, and he was the one that lured me away from Bergen. We own a white house by the fjord, and you can actually see the famous Sognefjord from our living room windows. We look forward to starting a family here, in this peaceful place – a tiny village with barely 1400 people in the entire district. He works as a fish farmer, and runs a site not too far from where we live.
We are expecting our first child, due in March 2016. This means I’ll be off work on maternity leave until early February 2017. Very, very excited about this life changing experience!
I have a lot of interests outside school and teaching, for instance scrapbooking – and especially Project Life. I also have a passion for yarn, I knit and crochet all the time. We’re always watching movies and series, I have a long list of favorites. Another passion is hiking. We have an abundance of mountains and glorious views. I’ll be sharing them with you in my blog!
