About Debra

I have a Pennsylvania Teaching Certificate (K-8) and prior to moving to Iowa, I taught at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh for 17 years. I have particular expertise in reading, writing, and public speaking. I taught in the communications department. I have a great deal of experience reviewing rubrics and assignments as well. I taught business and professional writing for many years and have much experience writing resumes, proposals, business reports, and technical documents. I wrote newsletters and designed the educational programs for an Eye Bank so I have additional experience in editing and writing.

I have 17 years of university teaching experience in the communication field as well as professional writing and curriculum design experience.

I welcome the opportunity to discuss my credentials. I have a unique way of approaching writing and speaking assignments.
