Profile Information

Bio
I'm a fifth grade teacher, a romance novelist, and an environmentalist. I believe the best thing we can do for the youth of our planet is get them connected to nature. It upsets me that I can go for a walk in my neighborhood right after school lets out and not see a single child playing outside. I remember my mother having to almost send a search party out to get my brother and I to come back into the house.
