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 guage 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!
