Teaching Interests

My core interest is in the teaching of writing at all levels and in various contexts. While my greatest passion and energy goes into teaching our sequence of first-year writing courses, English W130, and W131, I love spinning out the more nuanced moves of essay writing in W250, “Contexts for Writing,” and in W350, “Advanced Expository Writing,” and theorizing those moves in L502, our graduate course on Composition Studies and Literacy. I thoroughly enjoy teaching Food Writing, Women’s Studies courses, Victorian Literature, and the occasional Masters in Liberal Studies course or Senior Seminar as well.
