1. How did you develop an interest in writing?
During my teenage years I began writing poetry. Later, I coupled my poetry with my photography to create books. Soon I found myself writing poetry online which lead me to Helium. When I sold a Helium article for $240, I was hooked. As a retired teacher, I now had the confidence to start my own blog for teachers.
2. Tell me a little about your blog.
Since my background was in dance and primary education, I often joined the two disciplines together in the classroom with great success. I soon found out children retained more of what they learned when they moved their bodies while learning. I invented all kinds of games, songs, and activities that taught phonics,
math and science. That’s what I share on my blog and in my free monthly newsletter titled, Movement and Rhythm. You can sign up at http://educationtipster.blogspot.com/.
3. Are you part of a critique group?
4. Kathy what is your most vivid memory of sibling rivalry?
When we were young, my brother and I had to share a room. We hung a rope across the room and draped a blanket over it. That gave us some privacy. But the door was on his side of the room. Sooooo my big brother yelled at me every time I left or entered the room. Then there’s the time he tried to strangle me…..hehehe. Now he’s my best friend.
