I'm a former college writing instructor currently serving as Program Manager for University of California Curriculum Integration. I am passionate about media literacy and technology.
In addition to being an educator, I am also a writer whose work has appeared at Poynter.org, the San Francisco Appeal and SF Public Press. I also write the blog, San Francisco Treats--my tribute to all the best treats you can find in one of the best cities in the world.
I love cooking, baking, reading and hiking...and running up and down the hills of San Francisco. I can be reached via email at s.e.fidelibus [at] gmail [dot] com, and through any of the social media channels you see below. I would love to hear from you.

LaidOffCamp, an “unconference” for the unemployed, the underemployed, and the “I’m employed, but there’s gotta be something better out there,” was launched by Chris Hutchins, who put the event together in a matter of weeks and in doing so managed to assemble a gathering of smart, interesting, skilled people who brought a life and an energy to the day that made joblessness feel almost fun.
