Bio: I have a really cool job! I'm a Fire and Life Safety Educator for a North Carolina fire department. But - I will always be a Montessori teacher at heart and I use my Montessori roots to create interactive safety lessons for all ages. That's how I'm able to add a little pizzazz into my safety education classes. I've got a passion for teaching children how to be safe. I also love to help adults learn more about life safety education for their communities. When I'm not working, I'm writing, writing, re-writing, thinking about writing, brainstorming about writing, researching for writing... You get my drift! Join me here, as I write about current safety topics, safety recommendations, community heroes, children's literature, writing, literacy, and all things in between!
