I love the English language. I teach vocabulary, grammar, reading, and accent correction in Queens, NYC at a vocational rehabilitation program for the mentally ill. Am constantly amazed and appalled by the mispronunciation, misuse, and confusion between words that I hear nightly on television from supposedly educated people, some with letters after their names. Lived in southern California for eight years where I worked as a copywriter/editor and sometimes illustrator at a small ad agency. Hate winters in New York. Miss California.
