About Amy

I have been working with preschoolers in various capacities for about 15 years, mostly as a teacher. I fell in love with picture books years ago and decided I wanted to do something with my life that would allow me plenty of time to read them, teach with them, play with them, and share them with others.

I was blessed to get to spend time studying education and literacy in college. I graduated with my bachelor's degree and developed Literacy Launchpad as a preschool enrichment program. For the past seven years have been spending my days devoting my time and energy to instilling a love of reading in little ones. I wish I could say it's all for my students, but it's for ME too! I have so much fun and love it!

Becoming a mom has allowed me even more special opportunities to share reading! I get to read with my kids every day. My kids are 12, 9, and 4. My two oldest were born in Ethiopia and joined our family two and a half years ago. So even though I have older kids too, ALL my children are either learning to read, or still beginner readers. It's been interesting, challenging, and has taught me so much more about literacy and how to be an even better teacher.

Blogging here lets me share this passion for books with even more people! Plus, I am learning so much myself as I connect with others in this amazing kidlitosphere! Thanks for visiting, I am so grateful to be in this blog community with you!
