My name is Jackie Scheible. I recently graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in English. My passion is creative writing but I also understand and support the fundamental style of technical and analytical writing, as well as reading. I believe that if you can learn to read and think analytically, both technical and creative writing can be successfully achieved. This type of reading and writing can be considered a dying art, but in my opinion once a student learns those skills, it's even more impressive.
I spent a great deal of time in my educational career reading many genres of literature and editing my peers essays (from thesis papers to fictional stories), along with creating presentations. Whether it is fiction, poetry, history, or technical, it is important to find your style within the proper format. This enables a student's mind to add their special spark needed in a methodically formatted, carefully thought out paper (or presentation).
It may seem like writing and reading is all I do (and while during college it sure seemed like it), I do have a life outside of education. I enjoy going to the movies, especially if it's action/adventure or fantasy, I love riding my horse, I spend a great deal of time playing with my Dalmatian puppy, and I have a fair number of television shows I'm addicted to! There's also swimming, photo art, listening to alternative, indie, dubstep, and rock music, and hanging out with friends. I'm the type of person who relates to the artistic, creative, non-math and science folk and I want to share how I've learned to embrace that way of thinking because it is possible to be analytical and practical without losing any creativity.
