I am a middle school teacher who will be entering his 27th year of teaching in 2020.
Making art took a backseat as I developed a career as an English teacher. Now, I am studying making comics through the Sequential Artists Workshop (SAW).
Creating comics, sketching, illustration is morphing from a personal interest into a personal or passion project. Making time to sketch and share a story through sequential art remains of developing habit.
As a middle school teacher, my most recent publications include a contribution in A Closer Look: Learning More About Formative Assessment, K-6 by Lynne Dorfman and Diane Dougherty and an article in the July 2017 issue of English Journal called "Towards a Readership of "Real" People: A Case for Authentic Writing Opportunities."
