I appreciate you popping in to find out more about me. I’m a writer, crafter, educator, musician, geek, and fiercely creative person. I find myself fascinated by puzzles, geometric shapes, patterns, nature and human behavior. I primarily write for children, but I have a couple of essays you might like on Medium. I also wrote and illustrated a picture book app called I Don’t Like Pink! which was published by the now-defunct PicPocket Books.
I am a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. In 2016, I graduated with a Master of Arts in Teaching from Salem College. My master’s thesis won the 2016 Marsh Writing Award from Kappa Delta Pi.
During the day (except over the summer) you’ll find me working with kids. I'm a high school math teacher (this year I'm teaching Algebra I) and I love it. I enjoy learning from students and getting to know them. Teaching is very rewarding.
I’m also passionate about technology and the multitude of ways it can be integrated into the classroom. I enjoy exploring new tools that are designed to engage students and make life easier.
Since childhood, I’ve been known as a bookworm. If I’m not crafting, writing or in class, I’m usually reading. I have a Little Free Library in my front yard, and enjoy discovering and sharing new reads.
