Twelve years of teaching in California public schools, both at the middle and high school level.
I emphasize the writing process through revisions, writing conferences, and peer review.
I have been fortunate enough to have been twice recognized as Teacher of the Year at my high school, an honor bestowed by the students.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Communications with a focus in Journalism. I earned my teaching credential in secondary English education from U.C. Berkeley.
I have written some fiction and freelance news, and I have engaged in copy editing and proofreading on other authors' manuscripts.
