I am a literacy advocate and believe that communication is the key to all paths in life. And effective communication is not possible without literacy. I am a mother of two and a grandmother of three. I have had the privilege of watching, “up close & personal," one of my grandchildren grow from birth to age 6 1/2. It has been such a joy to be able to interact with and observe this precious little girl as she navigates the early years. And I am learning so much along the way!
