Fourteen years of teaching special education in the public schools, plus thirteen years of parenting literature and science loving kiddos of my own. We don't homeschool, but we do supplement with a lot of fun science, bookmaking, storytelling, and creative projects when the kids are out of school for weekends, holidays, and vacations.
hands on, creative, lots and lots of connections to literature, science, and nature!
My first book, Whatever the Weather, was published by Roost books in 2016. You can check it out here: http://www.roostbooks.com/whatever-the-weather.html
I was a history major once upon a time, but began a career in special education immediately upon graduating from U.C. Berkeley, eventually earning a Master's degree in special education. I'm now in my 14th year of teaching kids with disabilities, but have also done a lot of training in literacy intervention for kids of all abilities.
I am a special education teacher, writer, blogger, and mom to four curious kiddos. For a few years, I self-published an e-magazine related to great children's literature, storytelling, bookmaking, and fun kid science. You can look at issues of the magazine at: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Alphabet-Glue or visit my science and nature blog at: www.mudpuddlestometeors.com for great resources and information related to teaching kids about the natural world.
