Nancy has spent her entire working life as a teacher— first of young children and then at California State University Sacramento (CSUS) as a professor of literacy. She has taught in upstate New York, the inner city of Savannah Georgia, and for five years in St.Croix in the Virgin Islands, where she learned what it was like to be a member of a minority.
