Cori Dusmann is an educator, writer, homeschooling gamer parent who lives in Victoria, BC, with her 13 year old son. With a BA in Child and Youth Care (counselling), Cori has spent over 20 years working with children and youth from ages 2 through 17 in a variety of settings that include classrooms and out of school care programs in public and Montessori schools, as well as in classrooms and on the units of a children’s residential psychiatric hospital. Working predominantly with children with challenging behaviors, she has found gaming to be a source of common ground. In addition to her child wrangling skills, Cori is a writer and reviewer.
