I love hats. If you, too, hang your hat on the peg only to put on another one, then another, and another, then you and I might have something in common.
My favorite hat is the one I wear always--as mommy-- but I also manage to balance some others as well—as a free-lance writer, teacher, artist, dramatist, farmer, adventurer, deep-thinker and lover of God, people and life.
My articles have been published in magazines and online. I taught high school English, speech, drama and journalism for ten years before starting a second career as a teacher of early childhood music and movement for WeJoySing and as a teaching artist for the Canton Player’s Guild. My home is a small farm in the Stark County area. I like to camp, hike, water or snow ski, sing, and play guitar. I’m very content to spend time alone reading, writing, praying, listening to music (or making it), but I also enjoy hanging out with friends, family, and kids of all ages.
My favorite genre of writing is creative non-fiction. I love composing narratives about real life…so filled with drama, intrigue, and best of all, humor. Is there any better inspiration?
My children have grown up with a writer-mama, and they are good sports about that. I owe them much gratitude for allowing their stories to be told, both in past and in future articles…here at Patch.com.
I look forward to sharing stories: hearing yours, telling mine, sharing our collective stories, along with information that will help us grow as parents and as people. It’s one more hat to add to the collection.
