About me

Industry Education
Occupation Teacher/Writer
Introduction I taught high school English for 37 years--in public, private, and parochial schools across the country.. During that time I wrote a number of books about literacy that Crown published. They were well-received but some eventually went out of print. I've taken the opportunity that e-publishing offers to get the copyrights back from Crown and publish them myself. I'm also adding some new titles. I was going to stay peacefully retired but this whole Common Core issue is making me crazy, as it is driving the very curriculum that makes kids hate reading.
