Dean Traylor

Writing and teaching have come to define my life. I've been teaching for 18 years, and I've been writing for newspapers, magazines, and websites for 22 years.

My writing usually deals with issues pertaining to education; however, I have included other topics such as history, science, local issues, and entertainment. Aside from those topics, I've written several short-stories, flash fiction, and poems.

I've received numerous distinctions over the years. They include:

* honors from college newspaper for movie review, newspaper feature, and magazine feature.

*Honorable mention for magaizne article from Journalism Association of Community Colleges (JACC)

*Semi-finalist in AAA screenwriting contest

*Reader's choice for poem published in the magazine, Coffee!

*Awarded Teacher of the Quarter
