Teacher Bio:

I began studying Andrew Pudewa many years ago when I was homeschooling my own 5 children

and fell in love with all of Excellence in Writing!  Anyone can be a writer. From the girls who write

too much and need to narrow it down, to the boys who can’t get a sentence on the page, I love it.

I try my best to grade each student against themselves. I can usually gage their capabilities early on

and will try to measure progress as I see their own writing improve.

This will be my 11th year and it just gets better!
