I’ve been a high school English teacher since 1980. My first job was at a small school (about 140 students in grades 9-12) in central Iowa. Then we moved to suburban Dallas, Texas for a couple of years. We returned to the midwest in 1987, and I’ve been a teacher at William Fremd High School in Palatine, Illinois since then, serving as the school’s fourth English department chair from 2001-2007.
Along with Tony Romano, I’m the co-author of Expository Composition: Discovering Your Voice (EMC/Paradigm). Writing, speaking, and consulting on issues related to teaching, professional development, and composition instruction are also important aspects of my work.
