About Me:

I’m Carrie. I’m an English teacher, a college access counselor, and a mom, and I live with my family in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. I love books, writing, pop culture, travel, and parenting. I also love telling people what to do. Hence, this newsletter. 

About Extra Credit: 

I write this newsletter for parents who want to enjoy the fun of family life, manage (or at least laugh about) the hard parts, and relish their non-parenting selves and interests. It will arrive in your inbox once a week, on Tuesdays, sometime between “running out the door in a frenzy, ten minutes late, having forgotten at least two critical items”-o’clock and “accidentally falling asleep alongside your preschooler while curled up in their twin bed”-thirty.

I hope that in each issue, you will say “oh, same,” remember that everything is going to be fine, or discover some new things to love.
