I am a writer of short stories, an educational speaker, and a middle school teacher.
With my background in radio and journalism, I enjoy the challenge of selecting the perfect words and keeping things pithy. Short stories and flash fiction, especially with a deadline, make my little writing heart pound.
I am a Gifted and Talented identification and teaching specialist. I created the first Journalism elective in my school district, and I sponsor the Creative Writing Club. I am a vocal advocate for the intersection of journalism and storytelling, both long and short form.
I would love to hear from fellow writers and educators about molding this generation of readers, writers, and thinkers.
