About Bill


Bio

After graduating from UCLA with a degree in English and a teaching credential, I returned to my hometown in Ventura County, California, to teach English and drama at Oxnard and Hueneme High Schools. Having spent a decade in the classroom, I took a year off to recharge my batteries, but was pulled into the private-sector rat race as a technology consultant.

After graduating from UCLA with a degree in English and a teaching credential, I returned to my hometown in Ventura County, California, to teach English and drama at Oxnard and Hueneme High Schools. Having spent a decade in the classroom, I took a year off to recharge my batteries, but was pulled into the private-sector rat race as a technology consultant.

In the last handful of years, however, I have rekindled my passion for literature and education. I launched a blog, The Bill / Shakespeare Project, where I bring not only a fun, accessible yet still scholarly approach to a play-by-play analysis of Shakespeare’s works, but also the latest and greatest in Willy Shakespeare headlines every week in my “This Week in Shakespeare” podcast. I take on substitute teaching gigs at the local high schools, with the intention of returning full-time to the classroom next fall.

As I said, I taught English in high school for ten years, from 9th grade non-college prep courses to Honors/AP English for 12th graders. My literature background is wide-ranging, but my specialty is Shakespeare. I can also assist students with both writing and editing.

I taught high school drama, and have acted in community productions. My specialty is in Shakespeare, for which I can help with dramaturgy and scansion.

Theater

I taught high school Shakespeare and drama, leading pupils in both teacher- and student-directed productions. To improve my teaching, I took many theatre classes, including text breakdown and acting. Since leaving the classroom (as a teacher), I have directed community college plays and acting in community theater plays. My specialty is in Shakespeare, for which I can guide students through script breakdown, historical context and scansion.
