About:I am a single mom of 3 kids who has always fostered a love of reading not only for them but for my students (yes, I'm a teacher too!) I coach my daughter's soccer team and am passionate about helping kids. I also love books tremendously and have run numerous book fairs and events. I grew up in Brookline, MA (near Boston), moved to CT and got married, and then moved to Amherst, MA. My ex passed away recently and my kids are remarkably doing well. My oldest just finished nursing school and is an EMT, my middle daughter moved to Boston and is working for a computer start up company and my youngest is in 9th grade and is an honor student and 3 varsity letter 9th grader! I have a great dog (sometimes) and 2 cats and seeing smiles on kids' faces makes my day. I've discovered just how much of need helping kids buy low-cost books is, and I my dream is to make this a reality so all kids in western, MA and outside this jurisdiction can come and buy low-cost books!
