I am an educator with more than 10 years of experience in both elementary and secondary grade levels. I currently work as an Assistant Principal at an elementary school, but my teaching experience is in grades 7-12 teaching English, Writing, and Social Studies. I have also worked as a literacy coach in a K-8 school.
Writing is my passion. As a student at the University of Pittsburgh, I majored in English Writing and Political Science. I worked as a column writer and editor at the student newspaper, and attended several writing workshops. My writing samples have been both published and entered in contests, and I love helping students find the joy and reward in their writing. For over a decade, I have helped students perfect their craft and become strong, succinct writers. I have read and edited class-assigned and college admission essays.
I am a Level 2 Google Certified Educator.
In my spare time, I enjoy settling into a really great novel.
