Writer and Educator
Working in the field of education has been my first focus. I have been working the past 20 years with children with special needs. I have Masters’ Degrees in Special Education and Behavior Analysis. Throughout my career, I have been a Special Education Teacher, Behavior Specialist, School Trainer and currently Special Education Administrator. I have utilized picture books throughout my career, from academic to social emotional lessons.
As a mother of two young children, I find picture books a gateway to opening conversations. First, when babies are born they ask us for food and love, then as they grow, they ask us to tell them stories. That is what I do, I am a story teller. I have a self-published book and a traditionally published (Sage’s Tower Publishing) book coming out soon. Participating in Pitch Wars, Twitter Contest have helped me continue to learn and grow with my craft. I cannot wait to see where this journey takes me.
