nbsp; Gail E. Tompkins nbsp; After teaching writing for more than 30 years at elementary through university levels, Gail E. Tompkins is now a full-time writer. ldquo;Irsquo;ve always liked to write,rdquo; Dr. Tompkins explains. ldquo;My Dad was an Army officer, stationed in post-war Germany when I was four.nbsp; I remember sitting beside my mother at the kitchen table while she wrote weekly letters to my grandparents. I drew pictures and wrote my own notes that she mailed along with her letters. In third grade, I received a journal and filled it with details about the everyday events in my life, like kids do. I did lots of writing in sixth gradendash;more than in high school. I wrote a 126-page tome about anthropology after reading a biography about Margaret Mead. My teacher urged me to improve my spelling and predicted that one day Irsquo;d be a writer. Now I realize that I already was one.rdquo; nbsp; Today Dr. Tompkins divides her time between the east and west coasts.nbsp; She spends much of the year in Fresno, California, but summers on Cape Cod. The photo on this page shows Dr. Tompkins at a beach in Wellfleet.nbsp; Take a clook at the cover of thisnbsp; edition ofTeaching Writing.nbsp;Again it features a pencil; this time the pencilrsquo;s morphed into a submarine thatrsquo;s exploring the Atlantic Ocean off the Cape. nbsp; Dr. Tompkins is ProfessorEmeritaat California State University, Fresno, where she received the prestigious Provostrsquo;s Award for Excellence in Teaching. Previously, she taught at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, where she received the Regentsrsquo; Award for Superior Teaching, and at Miami University in Ohio. Before that, she was an elementary teacher in Northern Virginia for eight years. nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; Dr. Tompkins has written numerous articles forLanguage Arts, The Reading Teacher,and other professional journals, and shersquo;s the author of these books, also published by Pearson: bull; Literacy for the 21 st Century: A Balanced Approach,5 th ed.
