Joe Anson has been working in education since 2000. After spending 18+ years in the throes of junior-high language arts in Spanish Fork, Utah, he now works in teacher education at Bellevue University in Nebraska. His involvement with the National Writing Project began in the Central Utah Writing Project’s inaugural year (2009), where he was heavily involved until he and his amazing wife packed up their five kids and moved a thousand miles away. He hopes to become more involved in the Nebraska Writing Project when he is not observing student teachers and designing curriculum such as the new class he is excited to teach: Teaching Adolescent Literature and Social Justice. He is an avid baseball fan and enjoys charring mammal flesh over open flames and dabbling in poetry.
