About Jolene

I believe literacy is power and that we are judged by how we speak and write. I'd like to help students be better writers - so they can be successful in life!
I am a co-director of the Pennsylvania Writing and Literature project at West Chester University. I am also an adjunct professor at Temple University and Cabrini College. I enjoy working with students one-on-one with their writing. I have tutored students of all ages in the past and often work with my students in small groups.

I am a former high school English and writing teacher. I had my first book on how to teach revision published by Corwin Press in 2013. I earned my doctorate from Widener University. My research examined what factors effected students' success on local, state and national writing assessments. I am working on a second book on writing with a middle school English teacher and his classes. I write and read everyday.

I taught high school English and writing for 21 years in a Philadelphia suburban high school. Many of students went on to Ivy league colleges. I teach graduate level course son how to teach writing through West Chester University.

I am a student advocate - I believe all students can be successful!
