What started as a mom volunteering to help in her children’s classes, using her nursing experiences to help them understand puberty, has turned into a 35-plus-years career for Wendy Sellers that shares her expertise around the world. Meet “The Puberty Lady”!
The children in her classes nicknamed her years ago, and the main focus these days for Wendy is addressing what she calls “the wonder years” of grades four, five, and six. Her curriculum for these grades is now used across the United States and eight other countries, all with an approach of “less shame, more wonder.”
Read all about it in the Grand Rapids Magazine, January 1, 2020. The article is written by Holly Bechiri and photos are by Teri Genovese.
