MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a master's degree in Secondary Education and English. The University of Maine in Orono is my alma mater for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am currently a high school English teacher in Massachusetts. In addition to traditional English courses, I have taught science fiction and fantasy literature courses. Much of the focus is on the hero's journey, and I found that there isn't a great deal of practical teaching material out there to help teachers with this. Hence, the creation of my online store. More specifically, I focus a great deal on female protagonists, although I certainly include male protagonists in my teaching as well.
