At one point, Darcy was interested in starting an education resource company, so she was in place to witness the alignment of the Arkansas curriculum to the American Diploma Project. She returned her focus to her writing and publishing career, but as a mother, grandmother, author of children’s books and concerned citizen, she closely watched the im-plementation of the Common Core. When it became clear that the CCSS would be widely adopted, she purchased the domain CommonCoreStandards.com, a site she still maintains. Darcy Pattison is the 2007 recipient of Arkansas Governor’s Arts Awards for her work in Children’s Literature.
