E23 – Difficult Feeders (With Doctor Eva Cesnek)
Hi, I’m Doctor Evka! I’m a board-certified family physician and the mother of a young child who fed very reluctantly! Yet very few individuals believed the extent of the problem or knew how to really help! I started this website when I realized there is an enormous gap in knowledge and resources not only on the different aspects of early childhood feeding especially when feeding is hard but also in how caregivers and their young children get the appropriate help. Because of my medical experience, my book knowledge, my various feeding-related certifications, and my day-to-day experience with feeding therapy, I grew to have an actionable knowledge base. With what we implemented, my child now likes to feed, and I have so much more of my life back. Visit Doctor Evka’s website: doctorevka.com

E21 – Return To School (With Eileen Carter-Campos)
Hi, I’m Eileen, an educator, mom of two, and proud Boricua! Here on “MommyTeaches,” you’ll receive real insight from a teacher of more than 15 years and a mother of two boys who love to explore the world around them. But “Mommy Teaches” isn’t just the name of the blog, it’s my life! I’m teaching every single day, whether in the classroom or at home with my own kids. As mothers, we know just how important our role is, as we become our child’s first teacher. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, I find myself not to be a city girl, that’s the reason I relocated to Hudson Valley, NY in 2017. I enjoy reading, writing, sunsets, and spending time with my boys in the simplest way possible. I love the zoo, the park, and any chance I get I am incorporating academics as well. I strongly believe parental involvement is the key to a child’s success and I am proof of it. I have a son who is diagnosed with a mild case of Asperger’s and I work with him thoroughly, as I do with all of my school children to make sure they succeed. Here on “Mommy Teaches,” I blog about my experiences in the classroom, strategies that work for me, issues that may take place, as well as my blessings of being a mother, some trials and tribulations that mothers may go through, book reviews of my favorite books, and the everyday world of Eileen. I love what I do and I hope to be of some comfort, help, and guidance to other mothers all over the world! Thank you for sticking with me through this adventure.
