About Izzy

About Izzy
Hi! Since 2008 I've worked in public and academic libraries; before that I taught composition and poetry at the college level. I possess a Master of Library and Information Science degree, Library Media Specialist certification, and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, with an emphasis in composition theory and praxis. I absolutely LOVE helping students become strong writers and confident researchers. Please let me know how I can help you today!
