Meet the Teacher:
I am so pleased to be sharing the writing process with you this year. All of us are on a journey to become better writers. I have been teaching English for over 19 years, and I enjoy getting to know my students through their writing. Before moving to Iowa, I taught school outside of Washington,D.C. and in North Dakota. I have taught English and communications at college, junior college, high school and middle school. I enjoy the humor and passion middle school students demonstrate in their writing. When I am not correcting papers, I enjoy reading novels, dancing, singing, watching films, and raising my three children. Additionally, I direct theatrical productions and I am a water enthusiast. I hold a bachelor's degree from Saint Mary's College of Notre Dame in English literature and theatre. My master's degree is in theatre arts directing from the University of North Dakota. I look forward to a positive and productive year.
