Teaching

I’ve taught writing for fourteen years now, in courses that range from first-year writing to advanced composition, upper-division business writing, and special topics in rhetoric and composition, including one on digital genres. During this time, I’ve gained extensive experience in a number of learning environments, including the online and hybrid (or blended) environments. If you’d like to know more about how I approach teaching and learning, please visit my statement of teaching philosophy.

In addition, I also have four years of administrative experience, three in NC State’s First-Year Writing Program and one in the Campus Writing & Speaking Program. These roles have given me experience with program development, program assessment, and personnel review. They have also given me the opportunity to co-develop a new course for the program and redesign an existing course (see below).
