Teaching Experience

Learning is naturally fun. I want to expound on that, helping students see how exciting learning new things (or learning how to do old things better) can be. Student-directed learning makes this possible; I put students front and center in leading discussions, teaching concepts, and devising assessment criteria. Imperative to this process is community. Caring about each other, about the learning experience, about the world and people outside of our class is paramount in my courses.


I specialize in personal and lyric essays, but my interests are broad, extending to other genres of creative writing, rhetorical and critical theory, world literature, and feminism.
