Geraldine Woods has taught English at every level from fifth grade through Advanced Placement, most recently at the Horace Mann School. She is the author of numerous nonfiction books for adults and children, including English Grammar For Dummies, English Grammar Workbook For Dummies, Webster’s New World Punctuation: Simplified and Applied, 25 Great Sentences and How They Got That Way and Sentence: A Period to Period Guide to Building Better Readers and Writers.
She has an awesome blog - Grammarian in the City: Snarky remarks on language I see and hear in New York City. You have to read the blog posts about signs. She notes that “I am obsessed with words and language. I play Scrabble, do crossword puzzles, and walk into traffic when I’m trying to decide why “flammable” and “inflammable” mean the same thing.” She lives in New York City.
