Here's a bit about me:
--I write picture books and chapter books for children. I am also weaving and sewing a collection of one-of-a-kind cushy books for toddlers.
--In July of 2018, I was recognized as runner up by the SCBWI for the Sue Alexander Award. And, I'm published in Highlights Magazine.
-- As an educator for the Los Angeles Unified School District, I teach extraordinary students battling serious illnesses, such as Cancer, Cystic Fibrosis, autism, heart/lung transplants and Anxiety/Depression. I have written and received several grants for my students through Donor's Choose.
-- In 2009, my short film, MANiCUREd won “Best No-Budget Film” at the Broad Humor Film Festival.
-- I wrote and played in the Los Angeles bands This Trip and Drummed.
-- Ideas for the classroom can be found on my blog at Moni's Classroom Idea Box.
--Check out Teachers Pay Teachers for worksheets I've developed for educators.
