Craig is a Faculty Writing Tutor at Metropolitan State University, Minnesota, where he graduated from the Master of Liberal Studies program. He studied audio/visual production at Minneapolis Community and Technical College, and holds a Social Science degree from the University of Minnesota, Morris.
I have taught at the Middle School level for more than 10 years in the Baltimore area in private and public schools. Teaching grade levels from 5 - 8 has given me a lot of perspective on student needs in the classroom and at home when completing homework or long term assignments.
I'm proud to boast that my wonderful husband is a technology coordinator for a Minnesota school district, and Brock and I share 3 wonderful kids. Currently I stay home with our 2 youngest children, but for 10 years I taught middle and high school Language Arts classes also in Minnesota. Brock's passion for technology has become contagious in our household, and the way our 2 year old son can navigate an iPad is staggering. This "techy" exposure married with a love of language and literature has brought me to Sophia where I am excited to produce, share, and learn new insights in the English realm. I graduated with a B.S. degree from Bemidji State University and currently hold a license for Language Arts, 7-12 in Minnesota.
After teaching Secondary English for eight years, I decided to pursue a career in virtual education and curriculum writing in order to stay home with my son, Nate. I have a BA in English from Texas A&M University and a M.Ed from Towson University (Towson, Maryland). I moved from Houston to Baltimore in 2005 because of my husband's job.
