The Core Grammar blogger, known as Rehbein to her students, Ms. Rehbein to her administrators, and Tiff to her friends, has worked at the college level and has been a high school English teacher for more than 10 years.
Tiffany has presented at NCTE, CCCC, IFTE/CEE and recently finished her doctorate in curriculum and instruction. She is active in the Wyoming Writing Project and graciously and humbly works with other teachers as an instructional coach at her school.
When not tirelessly revising to get the "just right" sentence construction, she spends time with her family, traveling the club wrestling circuit with her two boys or cheering on the Colorado Rockies.
Tiffany will be posting engaging and informative blogs for teachers to use in their daily writing and grammar lessons, as well as fun activities kids will enjoy, keeping the learning alive!
