I have always loved children and have worked with them as a babysitter and in a day care home since I was a teenager. After having my own children, and being part of a co-op preschool, where parents were expected to help, I really enjoyed being with the children. I decided to go to college to be a preschool teacher. I have a degree in child development and hold a site supervisor permit. I have worked as a preschool teacher for over eight years and as a director of child care centers for 14 years. I have three grown daughters, two grandsons and one granddaughter (so far). I also have four sisters, six nieces, three nephews and two grandnephews and one grandniece. With my education and life experience with a large family and my career working with children gives me a good understanding of how children interact with each other and how they deal with new situations in their lives.
Molly Goes to Preschool (my first book) will help young children understand more of what to expect in preschool as they identify with the children in the story. I plan to write more stories for preschool children about situations and activities most children have experienced.
