I love learning, teaching, and mentoring new teachers. I'm also interested in improving student writing from across the disciplines. In addition to helping teachers improve writing instruction across the disciplines, I am also interested in improving learning outcomes in the classroom through applied mindfulness. When I am not teaching, researching, or developing products, I'm spending time with my family, traveling, reading for pleasure, updating my blog, and writing a new book.
