I am a collector of stories, discarded objects and memories. I retired as the director of curriculum and instruction for a large suburban school district and continue to work as a  mentor teacher, book coach, and staff developer. I served three terms as Poet Laureate for the City of San Ramon. I happily reside in northern California where the sky is always blue and the birds are always singing.

You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, or at Kristi Yamaguchi’s Always Dream Foundation where I am a Family Book Coach.
