Get to know Denisha Alphonse

Denisha AlphonseDenisha Alphonse believes that children need a lot of support when it comes to learning and always felt that she needed to find a way to be part of the learning process even if it wasn’t in a classroom environment.
As a mother of two young boys, Denisha understands how much patience is needed to teach children what they need to learn as they grow up. A small catchphrase such as “We Don’t Cry, We Try” is easy to get a child’s attention and redirect them from crying to listening and trying to do what is being asked. Denisha decided to put the phrase into a children’s book and hence being able to tie her passion for helping others and writing into one.
