Words of Gold

by Gloria M. Chang

 


Need a cure for writer’s block?
A surefire method to unlock
Wit and wisdom in your prose,
Lyric verses to compose?
 


Key word outlines and checklists,
Like the chords of pianists,
Equip writers young and old
To inscribe with words of gold.

 

 

Teaching Experience

An experienced tutor and classroom teacher, Gloria enjoys helping students think and write with clarity and vivacity. With fifteen years of formation in Dominican active and monastic life (2004–2019), she has a profound appreciation for the power of the word, which Hebrews 4:12 describes as “living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword.” The Scriptural reference predates the famous adage, “The pen is mightier than the sword.” Coaching students according to the methods of the Institute for Excellence in Writing prepares future leaders to communicate truth, goodness, and beauty effectively.

 

Gloria M. Chang holds a Secondary Social Studies endorsement from Eastern Michigan University, an M.A. in Theology from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and a B.A. in Japanese Studies from Wellesley College.

 

Parent Testimonial

“My son, a fourth grader, is an avid reader but a painfully reluctant writer. So far, we can see that the curriculum is well designed to effectively enable my son to write. Ms. Gloria, as a certified IEW teacher, has been very efficient in driving this method home. More importantly, her patience, her creativity, her enthusiasm for writing, and her encouragement about my son’s every single progress have made the whole process joyful, inspiring, and fruitful! I can’t recommend her more!”
