About Dane

After a decade as an award-winning newspaper reporter, I decided I wanted to have a bigger and more direct impact in the community. In 2010, I changed careers and entered education. I helped found STRIVE Prep charter school's northwest Denver campus and have been teaching writing, reading, and history ever since. My students have had some of the top writing growth on state tests in the greater Denver area.

The career change has been very rewarding. Nothing makes me happier than helping students harness their power of words and find their voice through literacy. When students take pride in their words, it's an amazing thing. It builds them up as scholars, citizens, and creators.

I have two undergraduate degrees -- one in journalism and one in English. I also have a master's degree in education. That education -- coupled with a decade as a reporter at newspapers in Colorado, Iowa, and Nebraska -- uniquely prepare me as a writing expert. I've leveraged my background to enable students from different socioeconomic, ethnic, and home-language backgrounds to capture huge writing growth on Colorado state tests.

To harness your power of words and grow immensely as a writer, please reach out to me. I'm ready to get writing!
