I’m ecstatic some of my work is being used to help students! This summer, “Wailing Station” was taught in a Summer Session English course at Brewster Academy, a private school for grades 9-12 in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.

Now, “Doors” has been added to the syllabus for Bristol Community College’s Composition II: Introduction to Literature course; I’ll travel to Attleboro, MA in October to speak to the class.

“Paisley Surprise” has been included in the syllabus for Community College of Vermont’s Winooski Campus’ Freshman Seminar, Dimensions of Work, which introduces students to a number of skills they’ll need to successfully navigate college level studies. “Paisley Surprise” will be used to help the students learn about reading literature critically.

This is all really exciting. I think my late father, a high school English teacher for thirty-two years, would be pleased.
