TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I spent 7 1/2 years as a tax auditor before returning to my love of literature and writing. After earning my Master's degree, I spent two years as a librarian at a top 50 law school. I then spent one year as the Library/Media Specialist for a charter school junior high and high school library. After this long journey, I now have my dream job: teaching English to 10th, 11th, and 12th graders at a large, suburban high school.
