Here are some other articles and essays — you can read more of my work at the links below:

Pardon My French, an exploration in teaching and learning or Why I created a one-woman show about my life as a French teacher.
I wrote an flash (non)fiction essay for a really fun event sponsored by Replacement Press and Paper Darts Magazine. It’s a short piece about using the word “awesome.” (Warning. There’s some profanity at the beginning, so if you’re easily alarmed, skip this one.)

AND I got to write a couple literary arts profiles:
