I am currently a part time Literacy Coach and Intervention Teacher for students who need extra support in reading and writing at an elementary school in Novato. As a teacher of elementary, secondary, and junior college students over the past thirty years, I have learned the scope and sequence of skills needed for effective reading and writing. With a light touch, I engage students as they work to their potential. Their interests and strengths help them to deal with challenges along the way.

Working with other writers and as a writer myself, I appreciate the writing process and all that it entails: developing writing skills, structure, voice and clarity.
