I have a bio! I’ve been reviewing apps for Common Sense Media since November, and I must say I love the work. It is fun. It pays well. I used the site as a parent to check on movies I wanted to watch with the kids and support the mission of informed media consumption. And I feel like my background is great for them, too — journalism degree and experience taught me concise and precise writing, graduate education program and teaching experience taught me about pedagogy, and motherhood taught me to be choosy about what my kids see, hear, and do.

Most of the reviews I’ve done have been for learning ratings, so not all are listed on my bio.

I do plan to post a few more blog entries in the coming weeks of a few of my favorite preschool and elementary level learning apps. There really are some amazing apps available.
