I spend a lot of time with kids: as a teachers' aide, a swimming instructor, and being a mum of two. I love being a swimming instructor and an aide because I love being in water and reading (but not at the same time!), teaching, and having fun. We have too many pets, I blame it on the kids. I have two chickens, two guinea pigs, one cat and one Fighting Fish. I have three certificates in creative writing and a Diploma of Library and Information Services. While working as a teachers' aide I love chatting about everyone's favourite books. I also love cooking, cake decorating, swimming and watching funny movies.
