Write until it becomes as natural as breathing.
Teaching is in my blood. Growing up in a home of educators in Ohio, I knew from the age of four that I wanted to be an educator. After graduating with a degree in education and a Master’s Degree in Curriculum, I began my diverse teaching career in Arizona. During my time as an educator, I have taught a variety of subjects to a wide array of learners, ranging from preschoolers to adult educators. However, the one thing that has remained a constant in my career is my love for teaching writing. Writing is fundamental in understanding all subjects as well as being the key to understanding and expressing one’s self. Working with students in a digital medium allows us to drop all other distractions and focus on the art of writing. I learn so much about my students as writers and people through their pieces. It is deeply fulfilling to watch each one of them grow more proficient and confident throughout the course of our time together as they discover and nurture their inner voices as writers. Currently, I live in Indiana with my two sons, Rick and Simon, and my husband, James. I love reading, writing, and spending time biking and running outdoors. I also enjoy trying new and adventurous recipes out on my family; although, I can’t say that they are as fond of my culinary experiments as I am. I am grateful to have a job that allows me to draw on the elements of teaching that have long been a part of who I am while working with students who continue to inspire me each day.
