Joy of Author & Teacher Life

My slideshow includes a picture of these beautiful girls as first graders.

Here they are as eighth graders joining me during a presentation at the Chicago Public Library.

I’m honored and humbled to still be in contact with former students and their families. It’s one of the things I take considerable pride in as a teacher. I know I’ve made a difference in the lives of my students and they have made a difference in mine as well.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" features a creative and curious girl who loves science, her little brother, and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a MG novel and several picture books with STEM elements and dogs.

    1. It’s the best! 🥰🥰 I’ve seen one of the girls more than a few times since I left teaching because her mom stayed in touch, but the other one I couldn’t find since she left the school where I taught. This year they ended up in 8th grade at the same school! It was meant to be! The girls hadn’t seen each other in several years either so you can imagine how thrilled I was to find out they were both going to be there! It meant everything to me!
