About Dina

Hello My Future Students!

I LOVE to write and want to help you become a better writer and have fun along the way!

I enjoyed school growing up (though I did get in trouble with laughing with my friends!) and graduated from a great college on the East Coast called Smith. I started sharing my writing with the world and have since been published in places such as The Chicago Tribune, The Boston Globe, Fiction among others. I am working on publishing my first short story collection this spring.

After finishing a writing residency in Oregon, I began working at a Chicago Public School where I realized how much I loved teaching, especially teaching writing. I have worked as an assistant teacher in the Special Education department for more than five years though I have worked in the General Education classroom as well. I have helped students from Kindergarten to 8th grade. Some of my students are now in college! It is so fun meeting them as big people!

I am now in graduate school at DePaul (what is graduate school, you might ask? I will explain in person my future student!) Studying to be a teacher and getting very good grades just like I know you will.

If you have any questions for me, let me know.

Go build a snowman (or snowlady :)

Looking forward to meeting you.
