Rhetoric and Writing
Teaching Interests
As a teacher, I strongly believe in the importance of a humanities education while also supporting students' need for public and professional preparation. I incorporate course materials and research projects that students can apply outside the classroom, that they can use for their job search, and that will help them become ethical members of their local, national, or global communities.
