At home in San Miguel, she is the is the mother of eight children, six of whom she and her partner Charles Kuschinski inherited one night 20 years ago when Lucina s best friend died in childbirth.

Lucina has taught math all her life, starting with her three little sisters. When she is in Chicago, she works as a volunteer math teacher at Agassiz, a public school. Her work at Agassiz gave her the idea of presenting the math syllabus in stories about the real life of creatures in Payshapes' forest.
