I am a wife and a mother of two children, a 6 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. They are adorable, enthusiastic children who
occasionally make me want to rip my hair out keep me on my toes sometimes. We are currently in the process of adoption. You can read our adoption blog here.
I am also an educator. I was a teacher for eleven years, and now I am an instructional coach. My official job title is English Language Development (ELD) Coach, and I work with teachers of EL students. I absolutely love working with people from other cultures/languages and immigrant families. Plus I like my summers off.
A few years ago I decided to seriously pursue my lifelong hobby of writing and got an MFA degree in Creative Writing. I have had both poetry and non-fiction pieces published in literary journals, and I am currently working on a spiritual memoir.
I love to read, YA novels being my favorite, but I’ll read just about anything. I love coffee and chocolate, and I enjoy cooking (not that everything I cook turns out well, but I try!). I am semi-addicted to celebrity news, but I can’t stand E! channel. My idea of a good time is inviting a bunch of friends over to eat, talk, and just hang out.
Lastly, I am a convert from evangelical Protestantism to the Eastern Orthodox Church, and my worldview continues to morph and change as I delve deeper into Orthodoxy.
I blog about all of it – the hilarious ups and downs of motherhood, the challenge of balancing work and family, the role of writing in my life, and an honest look at how my mixture of faith and doubt is making me a better person.
