TEACHING EXPERIENCE

As a writer, illustrator, and crafts designer, I have over 10 years of experience teaching hands-on afterschool enrichment programs at schools, libraries, and museums. I was the Homeschooling Expert for About.com and I've written eight books of creative learning activities, with more on the way! You may have seen my craft designs and articles about the best ways to help kids learn in Disney's FamilyFun, Parenting, Home Education Magazine, Make, and Wired. Online, I was a top contributor to Wired.com's GeekDad blog and a founding editor of GeekMom.com. And I have given talks at STEM and professional development workshops, in college classrooms, and at Maker Faires around the country.

MY TEACHING STYLE

All my projects combine STEM, history, and culture with art and literature -- and kids love them! You will find my projects open-ended and adaptable to any classroom or at home. In most cases, all you need are ordinary crafts and household materials, and projects often cost just pennies per student. And background information and additional resources help you tie in projects to your curriculum.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My book "Paper Inventions" was the top-selling title at World Maker Faire New York in 2015, and along with "Making Simple Robots" was featured at the Barnes & Noble Mini Maker Faire at stores across the country! In addition, my book "Robotics: Discover the Science and Technology of the Future" was a Chicago Public Library "Best of the Best" nonfiction selection in 2012, and continues to help kids get started with easy low tech/no tech STEAM projects.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I hold a degree in English Literature from McGill University in Montreal, and received my art training at Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am the proud mother of a game designer and a filmmaker and I live in upstate New York. You can find out more about my books and workshops at www.craftsforlearning.com.
