I was an 8th Grade American History teacher. I am currently a freelance writer, public speaker, tutor, and homeschooling mom of 8. I love finding activities that appeal to kinesthetic learners, storybooks that teach something in an engaging manner ("living books"), and anything that is both edible and educational. I am a Christian and am looking forward to the return of Christ.
