My name is Leanne Petitt! I am the founder of Little Genius Projects, and when I started, I never imagined LGP would blossom into this amazing site. Thank you so much to all of you who have made LGP a resource for you and helped carry us along to this point! Thank you!
I have been receiving emails with questions asking for advice about parenting and teaching. In response, I'm starting this blog about everything Life has to offer me: Parenting, teaching, child development, life skills, philosophies, etc. I will write about Life as I see it. There will be times where I'm critical or down and out (ice). There will be times life is copacetic and amazing (caramel). But always I will stay true to one message. Everything I do comes from LOVE. Be it tough or squishy. Love is Life.
Let me be the first to say, I feel honored to be given the opportunity to help build a strong support system for others out there in the world. BUT first and foremost, I need to say:
I am not an expert on any of these subjects. I don't have a special certificate that tells me I know how to be a good mom. I don't have any letters I can tack on to the end of my name that shows that I have learned from the school of life. I simply have a different way of looking at the world and facing its challenges. From when I was young I learned to see life in different perspectives and this is what I'm here to share with you. I am a mother. I am a teacher. I have a nursing degree I don't use in the traditional sense. I design teaching material. I am a bass player, pianist, and singer. I love to craft and create. I am mostly self-taught, but have had some amazing guidance along the way. I love my family. And I love my life, warts and all.
Life is meant to be the most important teacher. I take mine with a little Light Ice and Caramel Drizzle.
