I am currently teaching third grade under temporary contract in Madison, Wisconsin. In the summer of 2012 I joined the Greater Madison Writing Project and began to explore my beliefs on teaching writing and how these core beliefs align (or do not) with how I actually teach writing. Previous jobs include ice cream scooper, editorial intern, general store clerk, kayak guide and pizza waitress. I once worked at Whole Foods for two days.
I enjoy singing karaoke, riding my bike and being outside. I long for lemon trees, a VW bus and a high-powered juicer. I love to read poems by William Carlos Williams and pretty much anything else that I can get my hands on.
Welcome to my new project, Inspiring Writers.
