Teresa Buss is an aspiring author who is driven by her passion to help children in today’s culture. While volunteering at a summer vacation bible school, Teresa had the pleasure of working with children, learning about their daily challenges in a world of technology, how they overcome relationship obstacles, and what motivates them and makes them happy. In addition, Teresa is also inspired by her nephew and others close to her, who has special needs. She tries understanding the daily challenges and additional obstacles they are faced with in search of acceptance. Teresa believes it is important to take extra time to get to know someone because the benefit you receive far exceeds the time. She herself has faced many of her own personal obstacles. This equips her to relate with children, taking the extra time to openly discuss strategies to help them overcome some of their fears, different ways to approach uncomfortable situations and handle any obstacle they may be faced with. Teresa has immersed herself in different books and educational articles as well as gathered feedback from parents, guardians and teachers. She is living her lifelong dream of being a children’s author by writing a series of fun, colorful and interactive books about feelings and emotions mixed with current life lessons. In addition, she offers lesson plans and discussion pages within the books to help with Common Core State Standard (CCSS) and Social /Emotional Learning (SEL). She plans to take her characters on different adventures that promote many positive characteristic traits but most of all love. Teresa works full-time in accounting for a retirement company and her roots are in Menasha, WI with her husband Troy and their pure bred Yorkshire terrier, Marley.
