I have enjoyed 23 years in education, including 19 in the high school English classroom and three years as a 6-12 ELA curriculum specialist for the third largest school district in North Carolina. I have taught all levels of English 9, 10, 11, and 12; AP English Language & Composition; Newspaper Journalism; and Creative Writing. In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I have served as Department Chair, SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) Accreditation Committee Chair, and Writing Lead Teacher. In my district role, I developed curriculum documents, developed a system-wide writing benchmark process, created and facilitated professional development for teachers and administrators, and coached middle and high school ELA teachers. In addition, I have served on the North Carolina Writing Advisory Committee, been a reader for the AP English Language & Composition exam, and scored the SAT writing component. I have spent several summers teaching English as a Second Language in Europe and can speak basic Hungarian and French. In June of 2013, I left teaching to raise our adopted son and devote more time to writing.


My strength is my ability to build rapport with my students, so my lessons are very relational; conferencing, cooperative grouping, pair work, and seminars are common elements of my lessons. I tend to script my own lesson plans, so my published materials are ready to be used in the classroom.

I live in central North Carolina with my husband, a former elementary teacher, and our son, a five-year-old hurricane. In addition to creating instructional materials, I serve schools and districts as a consultant and train teachers in writing instruction.
