While I currently work as a middle school English teacher, I am a journalist at heart. Just a few months after graduating with a bachelor's degree in Journalism, I was hired at the San Antonio Express-News as a general assignments reporter. I covered everything from crime to education for both the News and Features desks. After seven years, I was promoted to a copy editor position on the Features desk, working with reporters, page designers and photographers to create visually appealing pages with catchy headlines and well-written stories. My main job was line editing for grammar, spelling, punctuation and AP Style, as well as headline writing and proofreading. I love helping students create a well-written piece of writing, but I love delivering those words even more.
