As a parent and a teacher, I’m very interested in the media my child consumes. I’m always on the lookout for books, TV show, movies, apps, video games, and events that are worth my while and my buck. I created Media Darlings to share the best of the best with you.

Talented media makers can make learning fun. A great day is one where I’ve found that special book, app, TV show, or video that’s so enjoyable, you don’t realize you’re learning.

I teach in the Communication Arts department at Marymount Manhattan College. I’ve worked as a media creator in publishing, including the children’s publishing companies Scholastic Inc. and Whittle Communications. I’ve produced narrative and documentary films and videos.

The ocean of information that is the Internet is fascinating to me. With Media Darlings, I try to provide a compass for like-minded parents.

All the Best,
Maggie Hames
