TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a high school English teacher and adjunct professor with 18 years of experience teaching ELA in grades 7-12, college composition courses and developmental literacy courses at the college level. I earned an MFA in creative writing in 2015, and I have a particular interest in all aspects of the writing process.

MY TEACHING STYLE

When it comes to writing, focus on process over product.
