Hi Everyone –
I am a former teacher, administrator, educational consultant and an aspiring author of children’s books. The importance of reading to and with children was brought home to me early on. As a high school student, I was an assistant in my church’s nursery. We cared for the very youngest children while their parents attended services. I soon discovered the power a good story had to calm and entertain!
I went on to teach kindergarten through eighth grade and adult classes in English as a Second Language (ESL). Over the years I developed and tended a fairly large classroom library. When I left teaching, I gave away most of the books, but kept a few of my favorites for my own library.
Now, I am writing my own children’s books. My first book is a chapter book. It is a book a child could read on their own, but also one that an adult could enjoy reading to or with a child.
When I’m not writing, I am trying to be a gardener. Unfortunately, due to the help of my “co-gardeners” (several Western Gray Squirrels and a flock of turkeys), I have not yet been particularly successful, but hope springs eternal !
I would love to hear from you.
