About Stephen

I have been a certified educator for the past 25 years, with the majority of my career spent as a high school English teacher in urban, suburban, and rural schools. I have an MA in Education from Harvard, an MA in Creative Writing from Northwestern, and a BA in the Teaching of English from the University of Illinois. I have also taught in Tanzania and Ecuador, worked in elementary schools with migrant children, and conducted research in the UK on a Fulbright teaching grant.  

In my free time I travel, read, write, swim, play music, and figure out ways to embarrass my nieces and nephew.
