Name: Alice

Line of work: I tutor high school math and do freelance educational writing. Right now I'm working to help put write a 5th grade math text book for a big publisher (one of many many writers.) It's new to me and kind of confusing, but lots of fun.

How long have you been working from home: I quit teaching after my 2nd child was born 6 years ago. I started tutoring shortly thereafter.
I started freelancing last summer, and I'm amazed at the number and range of things out there if you just use the internet and search!

How many kids do you have and their ages:
Brian, almost 8
Julia, 6
Kira, 3
As a point of interest, Brian was adopted from Korea. The girls are biological.

What is your favorite thing about working from home:Not having to scramble at 5:30 when someone has an ear infection... being able to be class mom and chaperone their trips and such...Getting to know their teachers as a result... getting to know their friends because I'm home after school when the playdates happen. (wouldn't you think a math teacher could count up to ONE??)

and just to mix things up ... What is your dream vacation spot? Of the places I've been: tie between London and Bermuda. Places I would love to visit: so many! Ireland, Scandanavia, Alaska, Hawaii... anywhere you're offering!!
