I am the mother of three wonderful girls: sixteen, thirteen and eleven. In my life before kids, I was an elementary school teacher in Cupertino, CA. I have a Master's degree from the Unversity of Washington in Educational Technology and love school and education. I've been married to Paul Edmondson, a HubPages employee, for twenty years. I have had a great time writing on and working for HubPages and getting to know this amazing community of writers.
