Online Mentor for Graduate Student Teaching and Part-time Lecturer, Dept. of Classics, Rutgers University; Part-time Faculty, Contra Costa College
I’m Kristina Chew, mother of a teenage son, Charlie, who’s on the severe end of the autism spectrum; a classics professor and translator of ancient Greek and Latin; a blogger, at My Son Has Autism/Autismland (2005-2008), Autism Vox (2006-08), Change.org (2008-09) and Care2 (2009-2014). I'm happily married to cultural historian James T. Fisher. I'm writing a book about Charlie and ancient Greek poetry.
As for what this blog---now called We Go With Him---is about, this post from 26 July 2005 entitled Autism: Not Exactly Heaven on Earth But Not a Daily Hell says it best.
