Teaching Philosophy

Writing is one of the most practical skills that students will learn in college, and it’s a skill that anyone can develop. I teach writing as a process of thinking, problem-solving, and communication, and I promise my students that if they participate fully in my classes, they will become better writers.

Research and Service Areas

Professional and technical writing, course assessment, online and hybrid teaching, student internships.
