Tami (Street Articles Author)

I have started a love of writing. I am an avid writer and have only just begun to write about all that I know. Enjoying this new found freedom.

I have a 5 year old son who is a visual spatial learner, which is an interesting journey in itself. He is my pride and joy.

I am married to a wonderful man who supports me in all of my quirks.

I write about that which I know. I've written on everything from teaching a visual learner to a computer store, to getting rid of fleas.

I'm a highly educated stay at home mom who loves her family.
