And thank you for stopping by!
Who: I am Wendy Kennar. Former elementary school teacher. Current writer. Always wife and mother.
What: I write personal essays and nonfiction. Much of my writing is inspired by:
- my years as a teacher (I taught for 12 years at the same school),
- my parenting experiences (my son is 9 years old),
- my experiences living with an autoimmune disease (seven years and counting).
When: I write a new blog post each Wednesday. Be sure to sign up to receive an email notification when a new post is up!
Where: I write from Los Angeles and have in fact lived my entire life within the same zip code.
Why: I’ve always been described as “quiet.” The truth is, I’m usually just biting my tongue. I’ve got lots to say, I just usually prefer to write it. I may no longer teach in a classroom, but it is my hope that my writing serves as another way to educate.
