About Me

See that typewriter? That’s how it starts.

I’m a Baby Boomer teaching Millennial students and keeping up with Greatest Generation parents in the brick wall suburbia of a small southern college town. Add a lovely daughter and a Perfect Grandson of mysterious generational labels, and the days are filled with paper grading, medical waiting rooms, and soccer games.

I’m a high school English teacher. In former lives I taught composition and creative writing at the University of Central Arkansas, advised their undergraduate magazine the Vortex, and co-directed the Great Bear Writing Project (National Writing Project). You can find me blogging here on No Telling or typing (literally) on Fresh Ribbon.

Oh, and I knit. Unapologetically.

One thought on “About Me

  1. Loved your blog about Decoration Day at Canaan Cemetery. Many of my husband’s ancestors and family are buried there. It is truly a lovely and peaceful place for a cemetery. Being an angel parent has changed my perspective on cemeteries…they have become places of love and peace and meditation for me. Thank you for sharing your experience.
