Extended Bio:

My educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts in Literature and Creative Writing, and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing: Poetry. My teaching background began as a Teaching Assistant and Assistant Writing Center Director at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where I taught composition and creative writing courses. Afterwards, I continued teaching composition courses at various institutions in the Chicago-land area, and branched out to Professional writing. From there, I traveled to the Netherlands where I received my CELTA certification and continued teaching writing courses with a new focus on English as a Foreign Language. In addition, I branched out to teaching presentation courses and editing company grants. This has all brought me to my current philosophy and why I use authentic materials in creative ways to guide discovery in student learning.
