After over 20 years of teaching writing at the college level, I now teach English as a second language to children aged 4-17. I am also a certified knitting and crochet instructor. My favorite things to do are teaching and making things. I also enjoy restoring antique sewing machines. I live in Florida with three dogs and a cat in a historic neighborhood.
