About the author (1997)

In her own words, this is how Kim Flachmann describes her academic life story and devotion to students and teaching: ""I am a St. Louis kid who moved west and fell in love with California. My passion is teaching writing and helping people understand its importance in our society today."" " "I earned my B.A. in English at Washington University in my hometown and then started teaching at Morton College in Chicago, where I began a Developmental Writing program in 1969. Three years later, I came to California State University, Bakersfield, where I currently direct the Writing Program. I enjoy teaching writing through my books and my classes."" " "I can't imagine any mission more important to the success of a society than literacy. Teaching people who to understand words they encounter and how to express their most cherished ideas can relieve their personal frustration, rejuvenate their self-esteem, provide them with skills they need to succeed, and ultimately raise the quality of all our lives. I feel truly privileged to be involved in such a life-changing passion.
