Hello and Welcome. My name is Elizabeth. I have served children in Bolivia, Peru, Panama and the United States. A graduate of Universidad Santa Maria in Arequipa, Peru, I taught on many levels: pre-school to adult Ed; ESL and Biology/Chemistry, but my favorite is still First Grade. Today, I write for children, and do author visits to schools by SKYPE. Thank you for visiting.

"Combobbled SKYPEr gathers her wits!"


A visit to a First Grade in Tuckerton, NJ, proved a delightful surprise.  I thought I was about to plan the visit.  However, the computer manager answered the SKYPE call with, "Good Morning, First Grade is waiting."  There they were --  a great group of children with eager looks on them. Four adults were present, too. One was the grade teacher and I wasn't certain who the others were. 

 I was a bit combobbled, but quickly able to gather my wits and read the story of the Pharaoh and His Toothbrush.  Seems it was READ ALOUD week and the little ones were waiting for a story.

I was happy to visit them. Children are so great! And I do enjoy any teaching moment!
