|SCBWI Profile:||Member Profile|
Before retiring in May 2016, I spent 27 years as an early childhood educator. Observing children as they discover the world around them is a passion of mine. Helping children understand our world, learning about relationships and feelings (how all of us have them and express them) continues to be my purpose in life. My love of children's picture books spans most of my life. Fred Rogers (Mister Rogers) inspired me as a teacher and mother of three. His wisdom continues to inspire me now as a grandmother of four.
My presentations involve reading the story to children to engage their imaginations with fun, interactive moments and movements. Although the story is intended for children ages 3-8 years, I am happy to modify my presentation for older children and youth by discussing the writing process and sharing the experience of publishing and promoting a completed work.
