This blog is about multi-genre writing and how this relates to me and my kiddos.  It is a work in progress, reflective of the books, articles, literature and projects that I do with children.

This blog explores iMovies, iTrailers, Chatterpix, Googlemap, Padlet, Youtube, poetry, list making, Emoji, cartoons, photography, drawing, painting and other images that all connect one another with a gentle, golden thread of visual imagery.  I’m just beginning…there will be more to come.


I am a totally blessed person in both my personal and professional life.

My education consists of a B.S. and an M.Ed. in Education from George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia, a second (almost finished) MSW from Catholic University in Social Work, and now a third M.Ed. program at the University of Virginia.  It’s addicting!

After graduating from George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia in 1985 with a degree in Elementary Education, I taught Kindergarten through sixth; lectured for Teach for America, wrote several grants/articles and taught as an adjunct.  Then, accidentally stumbled into a reading position in a Title I school in Arlington.  Today, I’m still teaching reading and believe I have the best job in the world!


Currently, I have no books published, newspaper columns written, or movies in the works. So, I thought I’d try a blog…why not?  It’s 2016.
