Why did you become a teacher?

I became a teacher accidentally, convinced all through college I would be a book editor. But from day one in front of a Composition class (barely older than the students!), I was hooked. What a joy to play with language and help writers feel less intimidated by academic discourse.

What is your favorite book?

What avid reader can really choose one book out of so many as the singular favorite? But since I must pick one, I choose Marion Zimmerman Bradley's The Mists of Avalon, which I read when I spent a summer in England. I discovered and fell in love with the genre of Medieval Literature, particularly Arthurian Legend, during the course of that experience. It is not the most well-written, nor has it made any bestseller list, but as many times as I've read it, it has remained timeless and continues to remind me of an unforgettable adventure.
