Pittsburgh, PA

As a family engagement influencer, my mission is to ignite family engagement in education. I write about local trending topics and current news that impacts parent involvement and parent participation in their child's education. Additionally, I write about topics that strengthen the family unit within the home and in the local and global community. I am a retired family and consumer sciences teacher, school and district level administrator, and professor of multicultural education as well as mother of a teenage daughter. My experiences and passion for what I believe about the mutual roles of parents and educators throughout the learning process of students of all ages empowers me to speak truth in my writing. Thank you for being a part of my community.
