Recess monitor at New Traditions/San Francisco Unified School District

I'm the mother of a second-grade public school girl, a writer, blogger, editor and play recess games with hundreds of students aged K-5 every school day at a small public school in San Francisco that is directly across the street from our house. This is my blog on BabyCenter; I have been writing about parenting my daughter, Violet, since she was born in 2005.
