During summer 2012 I interned for two of the classroom math magazines Scholastic Inc. produces, Dynamath and MATH. It was the first time I’ve worked for monthly magazines. I did a mix of writing, fact-checking, copy-editing, and statistics compiling. My bosses and the rest of the staff were wonderful.
Here are links to some of the issues I have stories in:

For example, I got to watch friends receive an Army-level safety award:
Instead of posting individual articles from my second deployment–a professional high point–I’m posting these newsletters to show off my layout, photography and writing skills (and in the case of the safety columns, editing skills). My boss, (now) 1st Sgt. Joe Thompson, designed the nameplate, and then handed the reins over to me.

At the News-Tribune, I wrote for the news and lifestyles sections, designed and edited the lifestyles pages, and took the photos to go with my articles. These are a few of my favorites.
