I am a former high school English teacher who has earned a degree in English, two California teaching credentials, and a Language Development Specialist certificate. I've been teaching writing classes to homeschoolers for over twenty years, and I am a former homeschooling mom. (I recently graduated my last child.) I am passionate about initiating students into the “mysteries” of good writing, striving to help all my pupils become competent in the craft. IEW has helped me become the best writing teacher I can be!
