Educational Publishing

I have extensive experience writing for children and teenagers and have worked with major educational publishers including Scholastic, Weekly Reader, and National Geographic. My articles for kids have won awards from the Association of Educational Publishers and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. In addition to magazine-style articles, I create standards-based educational materials such as quizzes, classroom activities, interactive digital content, and supplemental materials for teachers.

A small sampling of this work is available here. For additional samples and more information, please get in touch.
