I first taught writing when I was a graduate student at Western Washington University (1971-1973) and have been involved in writing and teaching almost continuously since then. I became a Certificated English teacher in 1986. My experience includes middle school, high school, community college, and university level courses. For the past sixteen years I have worked full time at Henry M. Jackson High School in Mill Creek. Each year, I have taught multiple sections of University of Washington in the High School composition courses: English 111 and 131, and Comparative Literature 240.
I am married and have a son attending a local university and a daughter entering her senior year in high school. I am interested in tutoring students--14 to adult--in writing, reading, and literary analysis.
