Meghan Grana has been an advocate for students and families across the U.S. for two decades. She holds a master’s degree in speech language and hearing science and has served students with a broad range of communication disorders, including language and learning disabilities, autism, and cognitive impairments.
Recognizing that the greatest factor in overall student achievement is social-emotional wellness, Grana became certified as a Pupil Personnel Worker (PPW) in 2018. She now works with thousands of families at one of the largest school districts in the country, just north of Washington, DC. She partners with families, students, and school-based staff in the areas of attendance and engagement, access to community resources, mental health, discipline and behavior, homelessness, special education and crisis support.
Meghan lives in Northern Virginia with her husband, two daughters, and mini-bernedoodle. She enjoys treasure hunting at local estate sales, making jewelry with her Twizzlers and couch surfing between the living room and playroom with her kids. When she's not doing any of the above, you can find her momming around town listening to true crime podcasts with her 25lb guard dog, Archie.
Children’s thoughts are the window through which their feelings see the world. This book demonstrates this reality in a fun and engaging manner and helps teach children the importance of talking to themselves like their own best friend while also modeling how to accept our own imperfections. This is a very timely book and is highly recommended.
