This blog is meant to help teachers create more productive writing classrooms. Its basic focus is how language is constructed, how meaning is made, and what the role of language is in our lives.  It contains information and exercises to illustrate linguistic ideas and principles, and further hopes to introduce a new philosophy about university teaching, thus changing the university experience for both teachers and students.

Ann teaches Writing at Montclair State University.  She has also taught English Communication to international graduate students at Stevens Institute of Technology. She has an M.A. in Applied Linguistics from Montclair State, and an M.A. in English from New York University.  She speaks French, Spanish, Italian, German, and Greek.

She is marketing Searching for the Unicorn: a Picaresque Memoir, the story of what happened when she started dating at 60.
