The Story

I grew up in a small town in the Detroit suburbs, and that's shaped the way I live my life. Being from Redford, I have great respect for diversity; race, creed, sexual orientation, and financial differences. There's a sampling of every different kind of person in that town. I've worked in a library for the past 7 years, and I could not ask for a better job. I love it. I have a passion for early literacy, and some of my early lit tips can be found on my other blog, Early Literacy Mama. Parenting, working, and grad school can drive me totally insane, but I do it all for the betterment of my family, so I wouldn't change a thing.
