About Us


We are Mike and Chelsea, and we are the two, married teachers behind Life on a Learning Curve.  Mike teaches AP high school history classes and I teach 6th and 7th grade World Geography and World History.  He’s the history guru, and I am the writer.  (In other words, all spelling errors found on this site should be blamed on him!)

The world of education brought us together.  We met in the education program at Southeast Missouri State University, and now, 11 years of marriage later…education is a huge part of our lives.  We talk about school too much after hours…but it’s super nice to have someone at home who understands the grind.

School isn’t everything, though.  We have lots of other interests – from travel, to DIY projects, to gardening (Mike), to cooking (also Mike…).  We have two awesome kids, Tessa (7) and Milo (2) who run us ragged and make us laugh.  And we thought we’d give this blogging thing a try!
