I read. I write. I teach.
I am the mother of Grace (16) and Abigail (14). I love my dear husband.
I live in Brooklyn. I have a black dog named Samson. I once taught high school, then ran an elementary school, then quit to spend a year living in rural France with my family.
Now I teach middle school humanities and write music. I recently published a book about our year in France. Its first draft was in blog form at Wherever Launa Goes. You can get a copy for yourself by clicking on the shell on my homepage for a link to the Amazon page for Home Away: A Year of Misapprehensions, Transformations, and Rosé with Lunch.
I also write now and then for online publications. Click to the writing tab to find links.
That’s probably all you need to know. Now go read the blog. I write about education, parenting, and the feeling of time passing now that I’m in my forties. You’ll find a little about marriage, a little about France, and a lot about the moments when I am successfully able to get out of my own head and simply notice the beauty of life in front of me.
Read around a little, send links to your friends if you find something that moves you or makes you laugh, and tell me what you make of it.
