A Bit About Me
Not only am I an educator at heart, but I am also an author of children's books. The STEM in me gave me the idea of merging technology/reading.
During my 23 years of teaching/ mentoring
I observed that prek-5 is a critical stage in development, especially regarding emotions.
Unfortunately, a lot of our children are not getting the character development that they need @ this particular age. They are growing into teenagers or entering adolescents without the skills required.
For instance...Emotional awareness often results in fights or emotional conflicts with peers.
What my book does is provide a relevant and engaging experience for children.
Tangible books are becoming less popular as students turn to electronic devices for reading sources.
My product fuses electronics/literacy to give scholars a colorful experience.
Talking about our emotions has become very unpopular.
But with my books, my goal is to make reading fun and emotions colorful.
