Where did you grow up?

On Staten Island. Yes people do live there!

How can there be a school without walls?

Originally there was no building, just a headquarters. We taught in spaces all over the city – from living rooms to board rooms. Our high school students learned about the city, and learned how to conduct themselves in a variety of places. Today SWW has a building with walls, but still works to eliminate walls between the school and the community, as well as between subject areas.

What makes you write picture books?

Oscar was my catalyst. Since then details from my own life have surfaced as well as those of my former students.  I listen and write.
