Biography


Welcome to my college writing course. My course will help you discover your strengths as an academic writer, someone who can communicate clearly and forcefully in all your assignments, someone who can demonstrate what you know and think.

I'm a native of New York City, grew up on the Upper East Side, taught school in Staten Island and Connecticut and now live in Largo since 1989. I've been teaching writing for most of my professional life.  I was educated at Fordham University, NY, and later earned an MA in literature from Marquette University, WI  and later a second graduate degree in writing and the arts from  Wesleyan University, CT.  I earned a doctorate in educational policy studies from Columbia University, NY.  In Florida I managed an educational research study for the Florida Department of Education and taught in the Western Heritage program at Eckerd College. Working for Pinellas County schools I served as an achievement specialist, demonstration classroom teacher, curriculum developer, and teacher trainer. I taught in the Educational Leadership Department for several years at the University of South Florida.

My research and views on educational issues have appeard in publications such as the American School Board Journal, Teacher Magazine and  the Journal of Staff Development.  Recently, I've begun to write fiction. In 2008 I received an grant from Pinellas Council on the Arts to publish Out of the Woods, a chapbook of poetry. My poems have also appeared in publications such as Sojurners, English Journal and most recently in Meta, SPC's Interdisciplinary Journal. Under a previous grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, I studied in England. This past summer  I was designated a NEH 2012 Summer Scholar to study American Culture (city planning, architecture, environmental change and renovation) in Brooklyn, NY. My blog entries for this program can be found at www.alongtheshore.org. This January, I'll be working on short story writing at the "Writers in Paradise" in St. Petersburg. Occasionally I post to Facebook and also follow a few writers  on Twitter.

I also sail with my husband Kirk on our thirty-foot catboat, the Tonia Too. I have four grandchildren, two in college, and two in middle and high school. I've always owned Rottweillers; this winter we have a new Rottie puppy, Belinda. We walk (and train) in Taylor Park. Movies and reading are my favorite ways to relax. Yoga,  meditation and gardening are ways to center my energies. I'm a big fan of the Largo Public Library and its bookstore. I love being in the classroom and hope you'll enjoy the process of learning to write well  in my course.
