Sandra Beck and Robin Boyd of Military Mom Talk Radio speak with Trish Wilkinson about how to create a strong brain in your kids and you! Trish Wilkinson is co-author of Brain Stages: How to Raise Smart, Confident Kids and Have Fun Doing It, K – 5 (Sandra Jonas Publishing), a writing coach, freelance editor, workshop facilitator, parent coach, and a contributing writer as well as executive editor for blog Tenacity to Triumph: The Bad Ass Code. A credentialed, mentor teacher of 23 years, Trish has helped numerous writers find their voices and move on to publication. Educator by day, Rock ‘N Roll singer by night, and ALWAYS the storyteller, Trish began teaching in 1984 on “Emergency Credential” in East Los Angeles to finance her music habit. She never dreamed helping kids grow to love writing as much as she does would be more fun than screaming into a microphone. The surprising side-effect: her “disadvantaged” students scored “proficient” and “advanced” on state tests. Trish went back to school to get a real teaching credential and eventually gave workshops to support other teachers in creating super-charged writing programs. After 23 years in the classroom, Trish went home to spend more time with her adolescent daughters—and to launch her writing career. Trish earned her Bachelor of Arts degree at California State University, Long Beach, her teaching credential at California State University, Los Angeles, and took graduate classes at California State University, Chico to earn her Language Development Specialist certification.
