Hi, I’m Alicia, aka stuckinmypedals. I’m a teacher and I relish my time with my students, but I’m starting to understand what my mom used to tell me about time passing in the blink of an eye. I’m a teacher consultant for the Northern California Writing Project, which simply means I have ample opportunities to overcome my outrageous fear of public speaking by talking to other teachers about what I love most: teaching kids to love writing.
I am a writer and throughout my childhood and adolescence I won several awards for some truly magnificent poetry. I’ve since stopped torturing people with bad poetry and instead spend my time perfecting crash landings as an endurance cyclist. I proudly raise money for the Lance Armstrong Foundation as a member of Team Fatty.
I married my high school sweetheart and he somehow manages to love me despite my stubborn nature, my affinity for candy, and my fear of birds. I lead a wonderful and funny life and I love writing about it. So, welcome. Kick off your shoes and stay awhile.
