Introduction
I live in Iowa, and teach high school kids with behavior challenges. I blog at My Mixed Up Family, and at empatheia, where I write about my experiences in a mixed race marriage (15+ years), raising my 3 biracial children, and my experiences teaching. I also contribute posts on Multicultural Familia, an ezine dedicated to talking about modern families in a multicultural world.
