I am a native Californian now residing in the beautiful town of Gilroy. I earned a BA from Cal State University Bakersfield in 1986 in the field of Communication/Journalism, and married in 1992. I love sports, Mexican food, most types of music, and BASEBALL!
Mostly, I am just an average homeschool mom who loves to write and teach writing to children. I have three children and educated them at home for all the way through high school. I began teaching writing using the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) curriculum in 2007 when I began teaching it to our small co-op (made up of all boys!). Since then I have seen our children blossom as writers using the tools that they have learned through the IEW curriculum.
I am a Certified IEW Instructor, and have completed all the requirements and hours for teaching at a “certified” level.
If you are struggling to teach writing or your child is struggling to “get it”, I would invite you to enroll your child in a class. You will see what I have found- that IEW can propel your student to writing confidence!
