Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Maria Maloney. I teach reading and writing. This is my second year teaching at Trinity Middle School. Before embarking on my teaching career, I ran a publishing house for 12 years, and I was the Outreach Educational Writer for the Smithsonian Latino Virtual Smithsonian for seven years. I am also a published author. I love to write poetry; however, this summer I spent my days working on my first novel.
I earned a Bachelor degree in Journalism and a Master's degree in Creative Writing from the University of Texas at El Paso. I have three children: two sons and a daughter. My sons are in college and my daughter is a senior in high school. My husband is a retired high school teacher and RN. We love to travel in our spare time. It is my goal to visit every state in the U.S.
