Summer Reading

As a special education teacher, it is always bittersweet when summer finally arrives. I am beyond ready for the break from IEPs, meetings, and SOL drama.

Seeing the World in Subtitles

Many people do not realize that although we all have different learning styles, we also have different views of experiencing our every day world.

“A Different Texture of Reality”

Ten years ago, my sister was watching 20/20 or Primetime News and saw a story that immediately made her think of me.

The Powers of Negativity

I am no stranger of thinking negatively...from thinking I am the most unattractive woman around to thinking that the stranger next to me is a serial killer.

It means getting on a strict writing schedule to participate in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).  NaNoWriMo is about getting to that magic word count of 50,000 words in one month. This is my 3rd year attempting that. My goal... Continue Reading →

Writing When Not at the Day Job

I struggle with finding the time to write. There are some months that I am proud of what I am accomplished. However, there are also months where I am overwhelmed with writing IEPs and exhausted from teaching and/or meetings at work. It is hard as hell to have four jobs. I said four, I know. Technically,...

A Good Reading Day

Today seems like the perfect reading day. I love a day where it is a little chilly out. Then I curl up on the couch and read a book (even if it is just during my son's naptime). So if you have just an hour like sometimes I do, go read one of my books.... Continue Reading →
