I have a BA in English and an MAT (Master of Arts in Teaching). Teaching elementary school (primarily kindergarten and third grade) and serving as an administrator occupied most of my life for about 16 years. Along with currently being an administrative assistant, I’m an adjunct instructor at our local community college.
I have lived in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee since 2006. I love to read and write, work in my flower and vegetable gardens, feed and watch the birds in the yard, sit on the front porch looking at the mountains and go camping with my husband and teenage son. I also enjoy watching wildlife and playing with my three cats and Australian Shepherd.
I have been writing off and on for more than twenty years and have had numerous articles published in print magazines and online. Alphamania: An Alphabet Resource for Teachers and Parents is my first book and was inspired by many years of teaching elementary school students.
