About me

Location Austin, TX, United States
Introduction The youngest child of two social workers, I turned out to be lots of things—policy advocate, writer for telecom enterprises, professor of composition, and public school teacher for 4th and 6th graders in Harlem. I feel luckiest to have been a teacher. After stints in Chicago, Boerum Hill Brooklyn, and the Upper West Side of Manhattan, I am home again, proud as the rest of them of this majestic and mysterious state. The blog, here since 2002, has been a journal of my experiences teaching, of home, and of transitional states. Please enjoy.
