About Me

Image result for images of teacher apples I have been a teacher for more than twenty-five years.  Most of that time has been spent in high school and middle school English classrooms in New York State. It has been my privilege to have worked among dedicated professionals whose work has both inspired and humbled me.

Most recently, after retiring, I was given the opportunity for a second act working in the Writing Center in our local community college, a branch of the state university system. The term is overused in our current vocabulary, but this experience has been amazing.

Educational fads come and go.  The jargon may change, but what remains clear is this: the success of public education resides in the teachers who arrive in classrooms each day determined to make today better than yesterday.  Image result for images of teacher apples

And then there are the students, the unsung heroes of instruction.
