Who is behind Working Words?

I have always loved reading and writing. From reading cereal boxes as a kid to editing peers' university papers, I have always loved words. As an English teacher in both junior and senior high, I enjoyed teaching students how to organize and structure their ideas, and I loved teaching grammar (Grammar Fridays!). My education includes a BA in English Literature, a BEd with a focus on Secondary English Language Arts, a Professional Editing Certificate, and a TESOL certificate. I am currently a substitute teacher while I work to build the Working Words business. I have a passion for helping folks communicate with clarity and precision while being (mostly) grammatically correct. When I'm not working words, I enjoy going to the mountains, reading great books, and meeting up with friends, both human and fur friends. ~Marlies
