I have been an educator for 16 years. I have taught and tutored English, literature and speech communications at various colleges and universities in the Midwest, on the East and West coasts.
I earned my BA in Communications and Journalism/ English in 1990. I went back to school in 2001 and earned an MFA in Creative Writing. I have just earned my 7-12 grade English teaching credential and I am beginning a new career teaching high school. My interests include: Teaching, of course, reading, writing, yoga, being outdoors, gardening and finding cool things to do with my nine-year-old. I am certified in Baby Sign Language and am an advocate for teaching little babies to communicate before they can talk. I love kids of all ages (0-150)!
