Carissa is mom to three children — two ‘tween girls and a little boy — and is married to her best friend and husband. She has lived in multiple states and her children have experienced several different schools.
She currently lives in a small town in Southern Oregon where fighter jets train overhead. In her former life she was a molecular biologist.
In her current life when she isn’t dancing the after-school-shuffle, she writes and consults for several online websites, as well as finds time to experiment with new recipes and pretends to be a photographer. She is an active volunteer in her children’s schools, church and in Scouting.
Carissa will share her particular brand of storytelling about the ‘GoodNCrazy’ of parenting and public school education. Contact Carissa by leaving a comment on her SchoolFamily.com blog, or visit her personal blog at GoodNCrazy.com. She’s also on Twitter as @CarissaRogers
