Hey there! I’m Robyn.
Here’s the professional (slightly boring) “About Me” stuff:
- Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education
- Two years’ teaching experience
- Author of two books
- Trained in Common Core curriculum, Daily 5 reading program, Lucy Calkins writing program
- Member of SCBWI (Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators)
Great! Now, here’s the fun “About Me” stuff:
The first time I laughed out loud at a chapter book was in first grade. I haven’t stopped reading and writing since.
After two years of teaching elementary school and admittedly spending WAY too much time reading with the kids (I just couldn’t stop. I absolutely couldn’t.) I decided to teach them differently.
Now, I write books for kids & I teach them to write books for themselves. (There’s nothing better in this whole, beautiful world than spreading the joy of reading!)
My job is simply, profoundly this: to gift young readers with good books & a passion for creativity.
