For 11 years, I have taught students in the areas of reading, writing, grammar, and spelling. I have spent the past six years as a middle school English teacher. During this time, I attended writing conferences and professional development opportunities in the area of Language Arts. Throughout the school year, I sponsor Writing Club where I train young writers, and I edit and revise students' writing as well as provide beneficial feedback. My love for writing began when I was young and has continued to grow. I started a blog last year and enjoy writing articles about various Christian topics. One of my articles was published in the local newspaper several years ago. I believe this passion for writing will aid my ability as an editor. I have been a Christian for about 29 years and in that time, my love of the Lord and Bible study has grown. My husband is a pastor and together we enjoy talking about the Bible and leading others in His Word. We have spoken at youth events and continue to disciple others in their walk with the Lord. I have led many Bible studies for women, youth age girls, and couples. My passion for the Lord and His Word is also something I believe will aid my ability as a Christian book editor.
