After 15 years of teaching, I feel that it's just in the last couple of years - working with the Writing Project - that I am beginning to teach what matters. Fusing technology and writing is at the forefront of my interests in education, along with Social Justice and Global Awareness. I became a Fellow of the Writing Project after the 2008 Summer Institute. Since then, I've been involved with the SDAWP leadership team, study groups, Young Writer's Camp and our new project, the Writing for Change Academy. Linda Christensens' "Teaching for Joy and Justice" has been pivotal to informing my recent work. I'm currently working in a 1st, 2nd, 3rd grade multiage class, which is a whole new challenge after teaching 6th grade language arts and social studies for the past five years.
