who am i? I'm a mother to two kind boys who love to explore, make games (like their dad), and find adventure in everything.
I'm the wife to an amazing photographer/game designer/professor (benpanter.com). I take credit for half of his success! (But that goes both ways.)
art exploration... I'm an artist and educator. Part of being a artist/mother/teacher is that I get to experiment in various media as I show my sons (and students) how to do something new. I make art because I believe that everything beautiful in this world reminds us that we are meant for an even more beautiful world.
I currently teach French in a public school. I am certified to teach Art, French, K-5 Elementary, and K-8 Supplemental Instruction in Reading and Math.
my favorite kind of day... Drinking an iced americano using my husband's home roasted beans. Watching the birds zip through the trees in our backyard. Throwing a line in at the pond with the boys. Taking a family hike on a nearby park trail. the books... My first book was, "Mama, Who Drinks Milk Like Me?" At the time, I was mostly just trying to create something for my firstborn. The book ideas that I have are about things that are very important to me, and I want to share them with you as I share them with my own family.
