Who Am I?

A 27-year-old aspiring author pretending to be an adult. What else can I say? I recently moved to Philadelphia and am working as a Kindergarten teacher in the suburbs. I love my job and I have some of the world's greatest friends. I'm very lucky to be where I am right now.

I'll write about anything and everything, so you'll find a nice variety of work if you follow me here at HubPages. Whenever I'm not teaching, I spend my time listening to music, so you'll find a lot on song choices. I also write movie reviews, poetry, ideas for working with children, and about animals...

Like I said, it's a great variety, and that's me just naming a FEW topics. Before you leave, allow me to share my favorite quote with you. I think of this often, and if you agree with this thought, we have a lot in common.

Stephen Grellet originally shared this, but I first heard Jerry Lewis say this during one of his telethons, and it has always stuck with me.

"I shall pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."

* * *

- Perhaps my first hub will share more insight into who I am. I wrote Still Growing Up my first evening with HubPages.

* * *

- Take some time and read my first novel - Letting Go - from beginning to end. Follow the journeys of teenagers at Franklin High, where every student holds a secret, or two, and one student is secretly battling cancer among it all.

* * *

If you're looking for entertainment hubs, visit my hub where I have conveniently linked many together in one place - KristenGrace: Entertainment Hubs.

* * *

For a more personal collection of hubs, you may be more interested in the following gathering of links - KristenGrace: Creative Writing Hubs.

Lastly, I have a selection of hubs dedicated to all the parents and teachers out there right here - KristenGrace: Parent and Teacher Hubs.

Also, more recent options, may be for you to follow my BLOGS! This is quite an adventure, because it takes even MORE thoughtful writing than Twitter!
