First and foremost, I am mom to two amazing children. S (age 8) is a typically developing child who loves reading, gymnastics, and making Rainbow Loom creations. G, a five year-old with autism, loves geography, outer space and weird noises. I am also a teacher, and I work in the field of children’s social development. I take a lot of what I learn in the classroom and bring it home… and vice versa. I like to write because it helps me process my experiences, and because I’d like to share what I am learning with others.
