Tell us a little about yourself. Well, let's see. I am a wife, mom of three, and hold a degree in mechanical engineering. Two of our three children are now in college, and one is still at home, learning along with me. We live on our tree farm in the Appalachian mountains in Tennessee, and stay busy growing kids and trees, surrounded by breath-taking beauty that God created.
What was your motivation behind this project? I wrote the book "American Government" after becoming frustrated with a lack of good resources for teaching kids about our government. I wanted to create a simple-to-use study for K-12 that included daily lessons for both Elementary students as well as lessons for Jr/Sr High students. This study has this, all on interactive CD-ROM, with clickable Internet resources included in the daily lessons.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? With so much going on in America and the world today I wrote this complete study so that American children could develop a sound understanding of our government. It is all-new and on interactive CD-ROM, providing a lively and fascinating learning program for students. I hope that students will enjoy learning about our government and its history, in a captivating manner - never as boring as the Civics class that many of us had to endure in our own childhood!
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Let's see -- I love books, so choosing a favorite author might be a bit difficult. I have to say that Jan Karon has been a tremendous influence in my writing. Her books came out during some very trying times in my life, and through her writing, I learned to rely on my faith and appreciate each and every day as a special blessing.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: We need to make sure that our children understand both the history of American government as well as how it is supposed to work. It is vital that they know these things, and this study has received rave reviews from parents and students alike!
