Hi there. My name is Kim Parker, Ph.D. I blog about issues of teaching, equity and young people over at Classroom Liner Notes.
On this site, Single Mom So Far, I write about what it means to raise a wonderful Black boy child in a difficult world largely by myself. To try to see beauty. To work hard to manifest joy. To build a village of friends who become our family. To protect him while still letting him live and figure it out while trying to not let my fear consume me. It is a beautiful struggle.
If you would like to know how he came into the world, this web site has my birth story.
Thank you for taking the time to read through these musings. I appreciate your comments that are constructive, supportive, insightful and loving.
