Devon Elizabeth Bryce (BA, MA, BEd)
I'm a teacher at an Outreach School, where I spend my days convincing people that 'alot' isn't a word, having engaging conversations about books, and spreading the joy of good grammar. In my off hours, I enjoy trail running and eating Oreos, though not usually at the same time. My caffeine of choice is Tea. Earl Grey. Hot. I believe that true learning is messy and sometimes uncomfortable, which, really, describes many aspects of my life.
