I am a teacher by education, a writer by vocation and a bookseller by profession.
I earned my B.A. in history while in my native country, Romania. My teachers showed me that without knowing my past I cannot understand the present and prepare for the future. Maybe that’s why I ended up as a journalist for more than ten years.
I spent the last ten years in Minnesota, learning the language and meeting wonderful people. I wrote and published a book, while selling other books for readers.
History proved to be my real passion and I am here to guide you through its intricate ways.
I love teaching. I love the spark in young children's eyes when they learn something new and interesting, a awe when they finally understand a hard concept, the curiosity that follows.
I love the passion with witch middle-school students plunge into a new field of studies.
I love the intellectual concentration and slightly detached academic interest of teenagers when they immerse themselves in a subject.
Nothing is more rewarding for a substitute teacher then seeing the light of knowledge burning in their children's eyes. (this description, slightly cheesy, is, though, true!!!)
Help people discover wonderful books and great writers.
