About Rach the Rache Drache Elg

Teacher by day, writer by night, paper-grader by weekend.

I've been writing for fun since the third grade, and have wanted to be a full-time published author since the fifth grade. I finished my first novel(s) at 13 and tried to publish them--and thank goodness I was rejected!

I studied German and Linguistics in college, and toward the end of my undergrad experience, I became involved at the local animal shelter. Little did I know, that was the first stepping stone to me becoming what I never thought I would be: a teacher. THE HORROR!

I just completed my second year of teaching (two years of 9th grade English) and am looking forward to my third at a new school, at a new grade level (6-8), in a new subject (reading!), in a new state.

If it's summer vacation, I'm probably available to review your work. I promise to keep the red pen and teacher-isms in check.
