Hi, thanks for stopping by!
I began my blog in April 2017 as a way for me to share my observations about the beauty of nature, things that inspire me and touch my heart in music, photography, and literature. I have worn many hats in my lifetime including daughter, mother, teacher, friend, writer, and photographer. My goal here is to make the world a little more beautiful through my photography and writing. If you are following me, thank you!
Laura Roettiger is the author of ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON and has enjoyed working with children ever since she was no longer considered a child herself. She was a reading specialist and elementary teacher in Chicago, IL before moving to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado where she worked in Environmental Education and as a new teacher mentor for two years at a STEM school. She is a judge for Rate Your Story, works with third grade classrooms through #KidsNeedMentors, tutors adults in the Boulder Reads Literacy program at the Boulder Public Library, and works with BookstoKids, a Colorado based literacy nonprofit. Her superpower is encouraging curiosity in children and her students, letting them know she believes in them. She has three children of her own whose curiosity and creativity led all of them into STEM related professions.
