I don’t remember a time when I didn’t love books. I was read to as a child and loved it. As I began reading on my own I started reading to my younger sisters, cousins and friends, bringing the characters to life. I started writing short stories and poetry at a young age, putting pen to paper when it was hard for me to express out loud what I was feeling inside.
I grew up and still reside in NYC . I earned my Bachelors degree in Behavioral sciences from Mercy College, and obtained my Teachers Assistant Certification. When I’m not teaching in an integrated classroom or writing books, I enjoy baking and being with my family.
I believe there’s nothing better than putting a smile on a child’s face.
