English Teacher

Began at Teachwell:

What or who most inspires you?

Stories, and those brave enough to share them.

Why did you choose this field?

I chose English education because I believe in the power of story, not only in literature but also in writing and speaking. I hope to help students share their stories.

What keeps you motivated?

Stories.

What is your background experience – degrees, experience, skills?

I have a BA in English Education and Special Education from Mount Marty College in Yankton, SD, as well as a number of graduate credits that still do not add up to an actual degree. I also do freelance writing and editing and recently had a series of poems featured in Expressing Motherhood.

What was your favorite subject in school?

English, of course.
