Welcome to Nana’s Corner. Poppy and I are parents to three grown children (two daughters and 1 son) and grandparents to 4 grandchildren whose ages are 12 (Kaitlin), 7 (Emily), 4 (Luke), and 2 (Dylan). Our grandsons are cousins who share the same birthday and their mothers’ birthdays are just two days apart! Poppy and I have been married 41 years…which is amazing since we had dated only three weeks when I was proposed to. We live in a small town in Central New Jersey where we both grew up - near the beach, horse farms, race track, and spacious parks just about an hour’s drive from New York City.
I am a high school special education teacher who is looking forward to retiring in a couple of years so I can spend more time with our grandchildren and doing other fun things like blogging, writing poems, photography, reading, going to the beach, traveling, and spending more time with my friends and Poppy – who are all retired.
My goal is to publish original and favorite poems that children submit to Nana’s Corner. If you have a favorite poem, send it to me so you can share it with others. Anyone who has written a poem may send that to me to be shared, too! The poems can be funny, serious, happy, sad, seasonal – including holidays – and about birthdays, or any topic you want to write a poem about, as long as they are appropriate for children to enjoy. (see Submit Poems)
Use the contact form on my Home page under the tab “Contact Nana” to write to me. I will respond within a few days after I receive your note. I look forward to hearing from you…soon, I hope!
