Bio: I am president and founder of Innovations in Online Education, Inc which partners with school districts to connect state certified teachers with students in the virtual classroom with a synchronous-only learning paradigm. I am also an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Humanities at NYU’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies, where I have been teaching writing for nearly two decades (in brick and mortar and virtual environments). I serve as a Faculty Observer of online instructors for NYUonline. I also work full time teaching English at West Milford High School, New Jersey. In 2007, NCTE published my book, Preventing Plagiarism: Tips and Techniques, which is currently in second printing. I served as advisor in the revision of Turabian’s College Student Writing, 2010 published by University of Chicago Press. Most recently, I was selected by CCCC to serve on the expert panel for OWI, generating standards for online writing instruction. My articles -- one on the painter, “Mary Cassatt,” and the second on photographer, ”Diane Arbus” – are included in Contemporary Women Artists (St. Martin’s Press, 1999).
