Training Development: Child Care Provider
Training Development: Parent Education
I write educational articles for parents, child care providers, families and children for a variety of audiences and use search engine optimization strategies when applicable.
As a writing coach, I've assisted a writer through the processes of character development, story line, plot development, dialogue and editing. My client has published three midgrade children's novels.
My work as a parent educator and trainer covers a wide variety of topics from family fun and exercise to effective discipline and meal planning.
I am knowledgeable of developmentally appropriate practice for preschoolers as viewed by the NAEYC and was a presenter at the NAEYC Conference in 2006.
I write and conduct certified trainings for child care providers. My specialty areas in child care training are "Growth and Development" and "Guidance."
Highlights for Children magazine recently published one of my craft articles.
My goal is to write and inform in an entertaining way.
