Reading deeply and writing carefully are the keys to success in any job or academic pursuit. With that philosophy in mind, I challenge my students to read, read, and read some more, learning to ask questions as they read. How and why do authors write as they do? And as we read, we strive to model our own writing after real writers--capturing interest, developing our ideas carefully, addressing the needs of the audience.
Background and Interests
I received my Bachelor of Arts from Pacific Lutheran University, and my Masters in Education from UCLA. I recently received my Masters in English from UCI!
When I'm not writing, reading, or attending the theater, I also enjoy hiking, watching movies, baking, and crocheting.
