Hello, my name is Melody Pendlebury and I live in Jacksonville Florida with my dog Gatsby and my husband Dylan. I am a third -grade teacher at a Waldorf inspired public school and a self-published children’s book author. My life’s work is to write and read vigorously, and to teach children the joy of writing and that anyone can be a writer. One thing you should know about me before I go any further is I am the typo queen. I read so fast I tend to miss a lot of my own errors. This has been a blessing in disguise for me because I have been able to teach young children, especially children with learning disabilities (such as dyslexia), that you don’t have to be perfect to be a good writer.
Not only is this blog just a homage to my love for writing, it is also about all my other life passions, so buckle up. I love health and fitness and how it makes me feel and what I have been able to accomplish since I’ve devoted myself to it. I love to travel. I love my dog like I imagine I would love my own human child, hence why I decided to write two books about him. I love my husband. We got married at a young age and because of this, we’ve had to learn how to save money and basically how to adult without much room for error. My hope for this blog is that I can share some of my favorite things about life and help people learn how to deal with life by sharing some tips that have made it easier for me. Thanks for reading, you really didn’t have to, but you did, so go you.
