Hi, I'm Jackie. I'm a public school writing coach and I love argumentative writing and literary analysis along with US History; I want to inspire others in their love for learning and passion for education. I earned my BA in Political Science from Brigham Young University. While completing my undergraduate degree, I worked as a student researcher focused on gathering primary source documents to support the department chair's writing of textbooks on the American presidency. I also spent extensive time editing manuscripts for publication, focusing on content clarity and grammatical accuracy. Through my work as a research assistant, I learned not only depth of content for US History but also the power that comes through the personal narrative; I love emphasizing with students the storytelling element in our nation's history.

After I completed my undergraduate degree, I earned my Master's in Teaching from Concordia University, where I student taught high school English, focusing in Shakespeare and creative writing. I saw how my passion for the subject area could inspire my students to take on even the most difficult of assignments. Through teaching students to consider the metacognitive elements of writing, they were able to "think like the teacher" to analyze writing prompts and effectively use rubrics. During this time, I also tutored students, working to help prepare individuals for their SAT and ACT, through grammar and writing instruction, and for AP tests in US History and Language and Composition.

My true love for and skill in teaching came through the decade I have spent teaching middle school, instructing students in 7th, 8th, and 9th grade courses in English and in 8th grade social studies. My passion for learning cultivates excitement for and confidence in my students. Despite teaching over one hundred students per year, I always make learning personalized as I worked with each of my students to develop individual educational plans with them so that we could work collaboratively in a coaching relationship. I truly believe that when student concerns are heard that the teacher can aid the student in striving towards the best educational outcomes. This deep desire to develop culturally responsive curriculum for students led me to an educational doctoral program in curriculum and instruction so that I could further perfect my instructional skills to create the best educational experiences for my students. Writing my dissertation helped me to really see how the complexities of writing can be broken down into a fairly simple process.

Through my work and education, I have come to see teaching and learning as truly a great work of coaching and mentoring. As a teacher, and a tutor, I work side-by-side with my students to guide them through the learning process.

I now work as a writing coach editing student work.

I researched and wrote my doctoral dissertation on culturally relevant reading strategies, during which time I read extensively about and instructed students in phonological awareness including: phonemic awareness, rhyme, blending, isolation, and segmenting. I am well versed in the two main methods of reading instruction (phonics and whole language) and the dichotomy that they represent. I use a balanced literacies approach to teach reading.
