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.
