About

Graduate student pursuing a Master's and certification in Secondary Education, English and Special Education, 5-12. I hope to continue helping students learn while I research the science of learning and teaching English. I have extensive experience working with students from diverse backgrounds. My background as a writer, programmer, game designer, and geek drives my interest in improving English education using lessons learned from developments in cognitive science and interactive technology.
