I teach second grade and LOVE our mid-winter Spirit Days. This was "crazy hair" day. I am a huge animal lover (3 dogs and 2 cats). I have taught elementary school for MANY years, and also find time to pursue my passion for writing books for kids. Grandparents' Day, a rhyming picture book about the joys of being a grandparent has won awards. Youngsters who have an appetitie for intrigue, with a spoonful of spookiness thrown in, will enjoy my Glowing Mystery Series (ages 7-10) Happy Reading!
