I am a Graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University as a student of English, Creative Writing, and Teaching. My educational background specializes in Secondary English Education, but I am practiced at creating content and concepts for lessons suitable to 3rd and 4th grade students, as well.
I specialize in short text summarization activities, poetic interpretation, and close reading analysis. Younger students of mine receive instruction in spelling, sentence construction, vocabulary building, counting, and word problems.
I am also a published author of poetry and short stories and have instructed writers and artists in writing, comedy, stage performance, lyric writing, guitar, music theory, and other artistic disciplines in my various positions over many years.
