Wonderlog Welcome to my Wonderland


aliceheadshot-11-editI'm a switcher. A career switcher, that is.

I transformed my professional life as a writer/editor, marketing consultant and entrepreneur into a career as an educator. Thanks to an enterprising family history and restaurants I owned together with my husband for 20+ years, I don't think I'll ever shake my entrepreneurial spirit. Thank goodness. It forces me to see opportunity in nearly everything. It makes me wonder.

In the classroom, I relished my role as co-conspirator of wonder with my high school students. Teens remind us to dream big and to feel all the feelings. As a division-level resource teacher, my colleagues are a wellspring of inspiration and collaboration as we build a community dedicated to nurturing literacy.

Every day I am amazed by discoveries in people, places, and things. It’s not always pretty, but it’s never boring. Life is a wonder filled with discovery, challenge, learning, and connection with others.  Thank you for traveling to my wonderland.
