You’re making it work! And my first thought was that your kids would be reading your book (how cool?!) while you’re their teacher 🥲

Thanks, Afoma! It really is pretty cool!!! And I’m having a great time filling our class library and recommending tons of other books, too--including some I found out about from you!!

Congratulations on your new book! I’ll be waiting to see how you manage to fit some writing into your life! I am also a teacher (now teaching Grade 1 after many years of teaching play-based kindergarten) and a MG and picture book writer.

Thanks, Andrea! I’ll report back later this year and wish you luck with this chaotic dance, too!

I hear you, Laurie! The dance is very real. How FUN and EXCITING for your middle schoolers to have a teacher who writes books! Congratulations on a cover and an upcoming book!

And juggling a newsletter, too! You are remarkable...thanks for these hopeful infusions of juggling and writing and life and teaching and art and KID readers. My own entry into writer-life came after my own classroom teaching BK (before kids...first and second graders) and then co-orchestrating AK (after kids) our local "Words are Wonderful" festival (an annual, town-wide celebration of WORDS, authors, illustrators, storytellers while my kiddos were in elementary school). Trying to do it all is a LOT. Way to go and hooray for your new book baby's beautiful cover!
