I teach writing and reading, along with social studies to fourth graders in the Los Angeles Unified School District in a wonderful school in San Pedro. I have taught for 28 years, and I still love it, almost everyday. I live with a husband who walks through the room while I write, mentioning all of the things he is doing as he does them, until he sees that I am blogging, and then he says, “Oh! I’ll let you write.” Love that guy. Sometimes I live with a daughter who comes and goes … she is off at college and I miss her grumpy morning face and her hugs and her laugh.
