I taught 6th grade for at least five years during my career as a Middle School teacher.

I have recently worked at Stony Lodge Hospital in Ossining NY, an adolescent inpatient psychiatric hospital, and at Green Chimneys in Brewster NY, a residential working farm/school for children with special needs.
I worked as Writing Coordinator at Middle School 80, Bronx NY. I taught two classes in Writing across the curriculum at Herbert H. Lehman College, Bronx, NY
