Service Description

Deborah Mitchell has never been away from the fields of education, research, law, and music. Trained thoroughly in the fields of grammar, reading, analysis, and various types of writing, she is now the only part-time English teacher at her small community college who is willing to teach technical writing to students whose higher education plans include no more than an Associate's degree.

Deborah brings a variety of experience to any job she undertakes, having been raised in a town of fewer than 2,000 souls, then living in a major metropolitan area, and currently making a home in a small city in out-state Missouri. Her career path has led her through toiling in corporate America, teaching high school English, working as a fund-raiser for a local non-profit organization, practicing law, being her own campaign manager as she ran for and was elected judge, teaching at the college level, all the while playing the piano at church, reading everything she could get her hands on, and finally, having the courage to write.

Deborah is a graduate of William Jewell College, a small liberal arts college outside Kansas City, and a graduate of the University of Missouri - Kansas City School of Law.
