I'm creating content and putting final touches on my site in preparation for its official launch... and getting very excited!
In this first post, I just want to say thank you for visiting, and I truly hope that my site leaves you entertained, empowered and armed with lots of resources!
If you're curious about my background....
I'm passionate about advocating for children's mental health, literacy and well-being.
I've always known I wanted to work with children, and that calling was amplified by parenting my own kids, 21 year-old Rebecca and 16 year-old Jacob.
I have been a teacher for over 8 years. Nothing makes me happier than knowing I have made a difference in the lives of my students. Right now, I am teaching junior kindergarten.
An expert in advocating for children with special needs, I founded The Selectively Silent Child in 1999 to aid parents in helping their children cope with childhood anxiety.
I specialize in consulting with parents whose children are ages 3-7 and
seek help with anxiety, autism and/or academic difficulty.
I offer freelance parenting consulting services. Contact me for more information.
Looking forward to getting to know you,
