What are you working on right now?
I’m working on a book that will feature games for kids at home and school with my cofounder at The Educators’ Spin On It, Amanda Boyarshinov.  I’m also getting ready to host the 3rd Virtual Book Club Summer Camp which launches on June 15for 3 weeks featuring book themed activities for kids ages 2-5. Next up is a Pinterest book!
How much research do you do?
The advantage on pinning quite a few kids activities on Pinterest each day is that it’s continual research in my focused fields of early childhood education and Pinterest. Plus having two kids in my house inspire me daily.
Why do you think it’s important for kids to read?
Reading is the tool that can take you anywhere in life.  Having a love for it will create a lifelong journey with literature
What do you do to support the kid lit community?
Much of the content on my website, The Educators’ Spin On It, is based on creating activities to go along with kid lit books.  Plus we share reading pins onto our Pinterest board with our 1.6 Million followers. Monthly I cohost a Virtual Book Club for Kids with parents and teachers on our website plus a Virtual Summer Camp each summer for the past 3 years.  I enjoy pinning kid lit content onto the KidLit.TV Pinterest Boards.
What does it mean to you to be part of the KidLit.TV team?
Books are my love and finding ways to help children learn to read is my passions, I am thrilled to be a part of this group connecting authors and illustratos with teachers, parents and most importantly children.
What activities do you do with kids?
I spent 10 years in a Kindergarten classroom and now am at home daily with my daughters. I work at home writing kids activities for The Educators’ Spin On It, Melissa and Doug and Sylvan Learning as well as other publications on and offline.
How important is diversity to you?
Raising children who celebrate diversity is a goal as a parent.  Exploring and learning with my children various cultures is something we share with our readers on our website and in our pins on Pinterest.
