TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an award winning author, attorney and former teacher who believes children are our future. Two of my books are on display at the Saison Poetry Library on the fifth floor of the royal exhibit hall, London UK, chosen by the UK Arts Council. My book"Surfer Girl" was the winner of best teen book at both the 2008 New York Book Festival and the 2008 Hollywood Book Festival. This book is also recognized by Girls Voices In Literature Database, Miami University, Florida, and is fifth on the AU Pukeke Reading list recommendations for pre-teen girls, where my book "A Book For Girls About Being A Girl" is ranked third for girls ages 5-9. Another of my books, "There's An Alligator In My Closet. . ." is recommended by KinderCare as an early reader. In 2005 I started Bellissima Publishing, LLC and I offer free videos on YouTube that go along with my books. You can see these on the Bellissimavideo YouTube Channel. I also have some albums out. I do all of this because I believe teaching and learning should encompass everything, and because you need to use all the tools you can find so that kids can have fun learning, create and hunger for knowledge! Teachers agree with me. No book is perfect, but I try my best. And that is all we can expect from ourselves and from our children. I am out to save the world, reaching one child at a time. And this is one reasonwhy I started Bellissima Publishing, LLC.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to foster creative thought. If something doesn't work, I try something else. I involve children in the process. Everything I do is child based and meant to encourage learning and the creative spirit. My books are tried and true creations that are kid tested. My simple drawings encourage kids to draw and copy words. I encourage children to do this and to grow their minds. Sometimes a simple approach can go a long way, as with my kid-friendly drawings. I also have a travel website at www.stop4fun.org to further enhance the learning process.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Graduate of SDSU-English, Bachelors Degree Graduate of Thomas Jefferson School of Law, Juris Doctor Passed the California State Bar--1984 June examination, lowest bar rate passage in the history of the State Bar of California Admitted to The practice of law by the California State Bar Association December, 1984

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My husband is the photographer for our travel series for kids, and we travel all over the world as I video stand up teaching videos for kids and as I show kids the familiar and not so familiar things that they would like to see. The idea is to keep things simple and educate in a very fun way--and all of these books also have music videos on YouTube to go along with them. Since my father, the late Pete Sirna, was a well known jazz trumpet player, and since I am also a vocalist, you might say that with the help of my broadcast engineer husband, together we do it all! And we have fun just like the kids who get to take advantage of all the things we do for kids!
