Steve Engler

My mother taught kindergarten for more than 25 years, instilling the importance of education in the Engler household from an early age. Even though I didn’t follow her path into the education field, I have worked my entire adult life educating my colleagues on proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation. My goal is to eradicate excessive use of commas and incorrect implementation of hyphens (particularly following an adverb in –ly).
