My name is Laura Cerbus, and I’m a teacher and writer living in Melbourne, Australia. Originally from Western Pennsylvania, I’m becoming acquainted with the beauty and grief of cross-cultural life.

I’m wife to Ryan, who fills my life with music and laughter. I’m mama to three beautiful crazies, working on practicing endurance and joy in homeschooling. I co-founded a homeschool co-operative in the southeast suburbs called Melbourne Scholé Community.

I work for Springvale Learning and Activities Centre, teaching English and Citizenship classes to English Language Learners.

I also serve as the submissions editor and a regular contributor for Velvet Ashes, an online community for women serving cross-culturally.

This space is home to my writing, both informal and formal. I hope you enjoy what you find…don’t be shy about saying hello!
