Steve has 14 years of classroom teaching experience. Most of his career has been spent teaching in elementary schools but he spent a couple years teaching 7th/8th grade English as well. He has worked with a variety of ELA and writing curriculums and has seen what works and what doesn’t work. Steve has done everything from teaching beginning writers what a complete sentence looks like to teaching middle school students how to write multi-page essays. He has a passion for working with young writers and fostering a love of writing early on in their educational journey. Along with earning a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies and a teaching credential in Elementary Education, he also has a supplemental certificate in English and is certified to teach in multiple states. He is excited to help students develop their ability and confidence as writers, and to help them understand why writing is such an essential skill to be successful in the 21st century.
