I live on the South Side of Chicago in The Gap neighborhood with my husband and two daughters.  I have a passion for parenting and education.  I was on the design team for a public high school (not a charter school) here in Chicago.  I am so excited to be blogging for ChicagoNow!

I am a very opinionated person, so blogging is right up my alley.  I’m not afraid to say what other people are thinking but would never say.    Some of my blogs are controversial because everyone has different parenting styles.  I believe in “Old School” parenting.  My children are not my friends and I expect them to fear me.  I’m not a “Tiger Mom” but I understand her methods.

If you enjoy reading politically correct blogs, you will be disappointed in my blog, but I encourage you to express your disappointment in the comments section. Feel free to contact me with questions, comments or suggestions at:
