Smarts with a Side of Sass

English teacher by trade, smack talker by nature, Stephanie Jankowski subscribes to the mantra: Life is too short, laugh! A mother of three in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, she spends way too much time caring if her kids' socks match.

Stephanie is a freelance writer for We Are Teachers, published in the bestselling parenting humor anthologies I Just Want to Be Alone, The Big Book of Parenting Tweets, and The Bigger Book of Parenting Tweets, and co-directs the annual live-reading celebration of motherhood, Listen To Your Mother Pittsburgh. She also makes a mean ham barbecue, but unless you're a 'Yinzer,' that probably means nothing to you.

Her blog, When Crazy Meets Exhaustion, is full of hilariously sassy musings on being a woman, mother, and educator. Steph was famous for six seconds when her pieces I Put My Husband First and The Worst Mother I've Ever Seen went viral in 6 different countries and more than 10 languages. Her parents still think she caught the flu from the Internet.
