My life has revolved around communication- both written and oral. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication with a triple minor in English, History and writing from the University of California, Davis, and have since taught English Language Arts for over five years.

Materials will be provided to all students during and after class. It may be helpful for students to have access to a printer to print out notes and handouts that are given after class, though it is not necessary. Students will need 3 pieces of lined paper and 3 different colored pens or pencils.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
