Hi Jan. Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. I wrote a response to your really insightful questions which you can view there. Although if you prefer, I can leave in on this page too. Just let me know.

I loved it and will come back for more.
My blog is for parents and educators on how to recognize school demands in individual student learning profiles. I hope you visit. I would love your comments and reactions.

In my latest draft of my memoir, I have included some poetry. I did that in my memoir about my brother, as well. I think it allows me to let my emotion out in a non linear way. I hope readers will like it.
