EVENT: Book Launch at Hugo House

I’m proud and pleased to announce that one of my essays is coming out this fall in the collection “What I Didn’t Know: True Stories of Becoming a Teacher” (In Fact Books 2016).  My essay is about the crazy learning process that was opening an international high school in China, and all the mwhat-i-didnt-know-cvr-194x300isunderstanding, culture clash, and ultimate success that went along with it.  It was nuts, let me tell you.  Someone almost gets hit with a baseball bat in the first paragraph.

I’ll be reading from the essay alongside other authors from the anthology at Seattle’s wonderful Hugo House on October 11.  If you’re a writer or educator in the Seattle-Tacoma area, it will be an evening of sharing stories and talking candidly about the challenges and rewards of teaching at every level.  Come join us!
