I have a master's degree in education. Throughout my 20+ year teaching career, I've taught everything from 3rd through 11th grade. I've seen where young writers begin and where they emerge as college level writers. My curriculum can help teachers of single grade levels take their students to the next level, or it can help home school parents take their students from the paragraph to the multi-page research report. I've given more than a hundred workshops since writing my first book in 2005. Thank you for visiting my site.
