TEACHER, AUTHOR, EDUblogger "I want to (read and) write books that unblock the traffic jam in everyone's mind." ~J. Updike
I am an Educator, Award Winning Christian Author, Freelance Writer & Blogger,Youth mentor, Bible Teacher, and TREK AWANA director. Teaching provides an opportunity for me to engage in continual learning and growth on many levels. I work for my students not only to master the course material but to give them the indispensable advantage of having a growth mindset. This mindset has been stripped from many of our students; yet this is the undisputed secret ingredient for their success in the world outside of my classroom. I also strive to be a globally connected educator. With my #LatinoEd #Edublog I share new mobile apps for education, article on education, share new and innovative classroom strategies, Up-to-date information from the education front, and lesson plans from fabulous ideas shared by the fantastic connected educators from coast-to-coast.
Here I review books various genres of books and music. I tend to lean towards YA, Multicultural,Teen, or Christian literature but I have been known to stray off the beaten path and that is where the Beyond comes into play.
I also like to explore genres of of fiction that many have not heard of. Genres and Crossover genre that may fall into such categories as Speculative Christian fiction does. Gone are the days when there were two genres, fiction and non-fiction.
So, journey with me to the world of fiction that many have never even heard of. From the well known: Ted Dekker, Marc Schooley, and Jenny B. Jones. To beyond these and on to some fantastic up and coming authors like: Audrey Bennett, Dyane Ford, (myself 😉 ) and C.G. Harris! Unblock the traffic jam, buckle-up, and enjoy the ride!
Here I reflect on parenting, my life , my faith and beyond. It could be something as simple as:
