Chocolate is Nice. But Equality is Better.

May 10, 2015
I love chocolates and flowers and brunch as much as any mom. But what I really want for Mother’s Day can’t be bought in a store. For Mother’s Day, and EVERY DAY, I want moms (and dads!) to be able to take a day off from work when they (or their kids) get the flu, or strep throat, or other illness;...

Teaching children is my calling, but I’m not paid enough to provide for my own

May 8, 2015

Where California Goes, the Nation Goes...

April 28, 2015
When I first became a parent, I was blindsided by many things. However, nothing hit me harder than the steep price tag and unavailability of high-quality childcare in our state. All of the centers I visited cost over $1,000 a month – the same as our rent! -- and many had years-long waiting lists...
