"History is a guide to navigation in perilous times. History is who we are and why we are the way we are."

~ David McCullough, historian

Freelance writer, historian, educator

With more than 20 years experience as a journalist, editor, and freelance writer, Ronna decided to shift her career focus to teaching by earning a Master of Liberal Arts degree in History and to begin working on a Master of Fine Arts terminal degree in Creative Non-Fiction.  Why? Both degrees accentuate her journalism experience and prepare her to teach others to tell the stories of our past.


As a college educator, she commits to making history & government interesting and relevant for her students. She earned the Quality Matters Teaching Online Certificate and loves finding new ways to engage her campus and online students.

How will you ever get 350 words on that topic? 

Having $350 in your pocket is a lot of money, but a 350 word discussion post really isn't as much work as it sounds. I find that students stress often spend more time stressing over word count than it would actually take to write it. 

Sound like you?
