Hi there! My name is Fran Lafferty and I have been making up little worksheets and games since before I could read. I live in north Texas with my Soul Mate and 2 of my 4 children (the other 2 are off to college), along with our 6-pound Pomeranian dog (my shadow!) and 8 bearded dragons.
Although I managed to make it through 7+ years of college and get 3 degrees (AA in Elementary Education, BS in Criminal Justice, and MS in Information Systems Management [computers]) — while still homeschooling my 4 children — along the way I realized that my strengths lie in creating materials and working with nature and with animals — NOT in working directly with people. I am a shy intellectual introvert, and although people say I am very outgoing and friendly, I get rather exhausted being around others for very long.
Totally my bad. 🙁
From January 2005 until October of 2012, I was blessed with the ability to make a decent income using my strengths to build the old H.E.R. website. However, as time went by I found that most of my work energy was being drained by dealing with lost passwords, undelivered receipts, and other customer service issues. When my web host told me he was closing shop, I made the decision to re-start this site upon a WordPress foundation so that I can re-focus on my strengths and get more FUN materials out there to more people – for FREE! This also led to the creation of a dozen other sites, some of which are ready for public use, others that will not be ready for a while yet.
You can find more pics of me & my family, along with screenshots and links to my current websites by visiting my Gravatar Profile.
