About James

I have a Master's in Education as well as an MFA in Poetry and been published in a literary journal. I have taught in the Peace Corps and from 7th grade to upper level undergraduate classes with 10 years teaching experience. My thoughts on writing are that grammar and punctuation are important, but are involved in the editing process. Before these aspects of writing can come into play, the thought process must be there. Sentence thought must logically flow from one sentence to the next. If the writer jumps or makes illogical shifts the reader becomes lost. Often times this jumping is what hurts beginning writers. Consequently, I work on creative ways of the beginning writing becoming connected to what they are writing to and help them realize when they are making illogical shifts.
