Introduction for glogirlwriter
I currently hold a position as a teacher of seventh grade writing in a small urban one-school district in New Jersey. Before then, I held various jobs, and before then, I was born and raised in Newark, New Jersey. Newark is so much more than what is conveyed by the media. I go back occasionally to see friends and support community and events supporting schools. By the way, please support traditional public schools! I am a mother, recently widowed. I have two cats, the oldest being my Midnight. My hobbies include writing poetry, surfing social media, and occasional exercise. I am hoping to publish my own book. In the meanwhile, I will keep writing poetry. For me, poetry is painting with words.
