About My Teaching
I love to incorporate activities and new media into the classroom, and the community of the classroom is what drives me to be a better instructor semester after semester.
How I came to Teach what I Teach
As a graduate assistant, I taught 212 lab sections for two years. After graduation, I began teaching stand-alone sections and sections of composition. Both courses support each other’s skill sets and I love seeing students grow through each essay or speech.
