“Walking a mile in someone else's shoes isn't as much about the walk or the shoes; it's to be able to think like they think, feel what they feel, and understand why they are who and where they are. Every step is about empathy.”― Toni Sorenson
explore Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
In third grade I was writing stories with my best friends Ellen and Carolann. On rainy days our teacher would read our creations to fellow classmates and I discovered through my peers’ responses the power of words and the joy of sharing them with others. I have been filling up lots and lots of blank pages ever since. Recently, I earned a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing and have written a collection of short stories entitled The Glasses. I joined the St. Dominic community in 2010 and know that it is a privilege and blessing to be afforded so many opportunities here to share, encourage, learn, and most importantly, to belong. The library is a beautiful space, enlivened by the students that come and go each day.
