Welcome to “A Growing Season”! I loved my time on WordPress.com but I’ve moved over to www.AGrowingSeason.co. Drop by my new place, sit a spell, and let’s catch up!
About A Growing Season
I am Angie Albright and hold a number of titles and interests. I am the mother of a very funny, very bright teenage son, a single parent who gets LOTS of help from my son’s dad, other family, and good friends. In my heart I am and always will be a teacher. I am currently a Project Manager at The Belford Group, a Web and Marketing Agency. I get to play at being a tech geek all day, every day! I was the Executive Director of the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter for over three years. I spent many years teaching college English before that, but have done stints as a bartender, waitress, retail manager, writing tutor, historian, editor, grant writer, and house cleaner (no evidence of which appears in my own home these days). I am active in my community in several civic organizations, and I’ve been a member of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church for many years.
I tell stories about growing up a farm kid in Iowa, being a loyal Arkansas transplant, single parenting, and parenting a teenage boy in all its glory and horrors. I chose “A Growing Season” as a book title several years ago as a metaphor for all the changes happening in my life, that happen in everyone’s life really, and its relationship to the growing seasons of the farm that I used to be so in tune with as a child. For my son, my family, and my friends I would like to create a better narrative and archive of our shared history than what I’ve done so far. My poor child. If he were to judge my parenting by his baby book or the chaotic state of all of our pictures, he might decide I wasn’t much of a mother. He knows better, I hope, but I’d like to create a little proof that I work hard at being a mom, sister, daughter, friend, teacher, and nonprofit director.
