Dear Teachers,

I come from a family of teachers and taught preschool through 6th grade for 14 years. I was a substitute teacher and volunteer with middle and high school students. I also spent the last 10 years writing assessment materials for all ages. So, I understand the skills, energy, and commitment it takes to work with students at all levels.

Though retired, I am well aware of how much the educational landscape has changed since I was in the classroom. But I remain committed to doing what I can to help. If there is anything I can do as an author or former teacher to assist, feel free to reach out. We’ll brainstorm!

As an author, I hope to help others find meaning in the difficult times of life. I also want to celebrate and foster individuality and creativity. I love nothing better than finding the right words to touch my readers’ hearts and funny bones!

Thanks for all you do.
