About Davida


Bio

I love teaching and tutoring, seeing young minds expand as they are introduced to new subject matter. I have taught in the COMPAS Writers-in-the-Schools program, the SteppingStone Playwrights-in-the-Schools program, and the Center for Arts Criticism Critics-in-the-Schools program. My other teaching venues have included The Loft, Hamline University, the University of Minnesota, the General Mills Corporation, and the Minnesota Society of Technical Communicators.

I love teaching and tutoring, seeing young minds expand as they are introduced to new subject matter. I have taught in the COMPAS Writers-in-the-Schools program, the SteppingStone Playwrights-in-the-Schools program, and the Center for Arts Criticism Critics-in-the-Schools program. My other teaching venues have included The Loft, Hamline University, the University of Minnesota, the General Mills Corporation, and the Minnesota Society of Technical Communicators.

Professionally I have had three youth musicals commissioned and produced by SteppingStone Theater. Along with a poet friend, I started the poetry slam series at Kieran's Pub. I then moved to New York for 17 years where I directed off off Broadway at the Riant Theatre, had my work read on Broadway at Symphony Space, and worked in the marketing department at HBO. I have published three books: two for adults and one for children, and I am currently working on a self-motivational book. Writing is my passion and I've been writing since I was in the fourth grade when I would write 20 page book reports. I can help you with any of your writing and reading needs.
