30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 1

[Day 1]
Introduce yourself, post a recent picture and give 15 interesting facts

I'm linking up with Katie K. for the next month or so for the 30 Day Blog Challenge. 
Wish me, and everyone else who's participating, perseverance and good luck!

I'm Jo Black.  I'm a teacher, a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend.
I'm an aunt, a cousin, and a daughter-in-law.
I'm a christian.

I grew up in Cheraw, the youngest of 5 children.  I went to public school and then off to Winthrop College to study special education.  After Winthrop, I started teaching in Marlboro County,
 and am still employed here 27 years later. 
I am married to Chuck, and together we have three children. 
They are the lights of my life.
