Hello! I live in Washington, DC, and I have taught students of all ages for over 25 years.
I love working to help learners appreciate literature and develop their rhetorical and creative writing skills. A central objective of my teaching is empowering learners with strategies they can make use of on their own, and in each class I encourage students to participate fully in our sessions together by contributing to class discussions and asking questions. My current class offerings include literature study book clubs, creative writing, and formal essay writing.
Academically I hold a Bachelor's Degree in English Education, a Master's Degree in Literature, and a Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction.
When I'm not teaching, I love spending time with my family and 17 year old dog, Sadie (who often makes special appearances in my classes). :)
