I have taught English in the public school system for 15 years. I believe all people have the ability to express themselves effectively through oral and written communication.

As a teacher, I have had tremendous success working not only with my own students but with others who are struggling in other classes. I am well-equipped to work with students of all ages and at all levels of understanding. I am incredibly patient and innovative in my approach. I am looking for students who are highly motivated, hard working and interested in taking their skills to the next level.

I have taught English Language Arts Pre-AP (11th grade), on-level 9th and 10th grade, ESL I and Reading (8th and 12th grade) over the course of my career. Additionally, as a published author, I have very strong written communication skills.

Public Speaking

As a part of book tours, I have had the opportunity to speak to audiences all over the world. I have participated in numerous radio and television interviews, as well as been the keynote speaker to university students and staff, community groups and health care professional seminars. I have an extensive speaker resume, including speaking at Harvard University for the International Society for Self-Injury symposium.


I have fifteen years of experience preparing high school students for the state-level exit ELA exams. I understand what is required for short answer responses, narrative essay, objective-based questions and the revising and editing portions of the exam. As a result of the strategies I have taught my students, I had 100% of them pass in 2010, with most of them being commended. I have full confidence that I can help any student pass this exam.


As an English teacher, I have a strong foundation in the specific aspects of the writing process. As a published author, I have the real-world experiences of how this process works, and the varied ways it can be utilized in written communication.
