Also follow me on:

I am a mother of two - a son who was born in 2011 and daughter who was born in 2013. I have a B.A. in English and another B.A in Social and Criminal Justice. I am now working on a master's in Psychology with an emphasis on educational leadership and mental health administration with hopes of teaching at a university/college and eventually opening my own practice, once I obtain my Ph.D., working in the world of substance abuse and mental health. I also love to write, therefore, I am working on a blog and hoping to gain a following. I first went to college to be in that world of writers, but ended up in the world of teaching. Teaching was fun for a time, but I miss writing. Hence, the reason I am on here - to write and hope to maybe make a difference.

I have always loved writing. I wrote my first book when I was in Kindergarten. In high school, I won $300 and a plaque for an essay contest for Next magazine (http://www.floridanext.com/info.asp). They published my essay in the magazine (2001). I also got published in my college newspapers - poetry and articles.

For the past seven years, I worked as a teacher (ESOL, English, Writing, & Reading) and tutor for English and writing.

As of right now, I am a tutor for a company called Brainfuse.com.

I'm using HubPages as a way to get my name out there and hopefully gain a following.

Thank you for reading and hope you enjoy the information found here.

Sincerely,

Amber Maccione
