I am a writer and teacher, living in Houston. I teach creative writing for the amazing non profit, Writers In The Schools. I am passionate about education and find myself eternally frustrated why education today is so complex and not about the people who matter most, children. When I am not teaching I spend time working on a variety of short stories, mostly about my own life and the ways I have unintentionally humiliated myself (have you heard about the time I shaved my eyebrows?).
I have a husband and a son and a dog that sheds all the damn time. This blog is intended to inspire and push me to write as well as better explore what I love to teach. I hope you enjoy.
