I am a father, husband, writer, and English teacher at a public magnet school in Ann Arbor, Michigan. For much of the last decade I have wondered how it is possible to simultaneously fill all of those roles well, as each one by itself often feels as if it would require nearly all of my time to do right. This problem, and a deep sense that writing instruction in our country has a lot of areas where it needs significant improvement are what inform my weekly newsletter, Re-Write. My hope is that it helps you to be a better teacher, parent, partner, and friend to all those in your life.
