Thank you for visiting my blog, Along the Way. My favorite things are reading and writing. That is, after my fabulous family, my Yorkie, and spumoni ice cream. Sunsets and sleeping in are nice, too. But reading and writing are way up there.
I hold a BFA in creative writing and an MA in English. I like writing poems and have had a few published, but I also do free lance writing and am working on a novel. I consult at the Metropolitan Community College Writing Center.
After more years than I like to say, I am saying goodbye to my remarkable colleagues in the first-year writing program at the University at Nebraska at Omaha (and saying goodbye to grading compositions). I am excited to start a new adventure assisting the outstanding teachers of Field Club School with their third grade students.
Other interests: I like to encourage young people to write and have organized several writing contests for students K-8th grade.
Besides reading and writing, I like walking my dog, and playing scrabble on line. The ballroom dance classes are also fun, but so far they have not yet succeeded in transforming me into less of a nerd.
