Author – Speaker – Award winning teacher

Parent, teacher, writer

Parent, teacher, writer

All children can get excited about reading and writing, but some of them don’t. And that’s my passion. My experience as an author, advocate, and special education teacher can help reluctant readers and writers achieve success. More importantly, they find out they can love the process!

Twenty years of teaching make me an excellent resource for your publishing needs. 

For students:

I write nonfiction pieces for primary and intermediate readers.  Nearly twenty years of teaching experience is evident in the engaging, informative pieces I create.

For parents and teachers:

My completed works include articles about improving parent-teacher relationships, toilet training, sibling rivalry, and exploring educational pathways. I am focused on improving the communication between teachers and parents, as well as within the therapy team.
