Joan Prusky Glass is the child of a Korean immigrant and an Irish and Polish-American Detroiter. She worked for 15 years in public education as a teacher and administrator. In 2011 she began a professional hiatus in order to save her soul, raise her children, write poetry, and become an educational advocate (www.GiftedAdvocates.com). She feels it important to mention that she is both a recovering Baptist and disillusioned feminist. Her poems have appeared in Haggard and Halloo, Smith College AQ, and Emprise Review, among others. Joan resides in Connecticut with her three young children and geek in shining armor.
