Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

As a teacher of 7th graders and high school students for many years, I am a big believer in the power of words. I began writing for tweens and teens because I wanted to tell stories that help readers understand that we are not alone. Our triumphs and our pain connect us to one another. As C.S. Lewis claimed, “We read to know we are not alone.”

But stories are like doors: they open us up to new ways of thinking, new kinds of relationships, and new opportunities to see ourselves and the world creatively and differently. In my writing and teaching for young children, middle-graders, teens, and teachers, I hope to offer a few doors along the way.

I currently teach at Endicott College in the Education department, where I passionately hope to inspire new teachers to make a difference by working towards classrooms focused on justice, relational connection, and meaning.
