I strive to create learning environments that account for diverse lived experiences.
My main teaching goal is for students to learn how literacies and languages are tied to power relations. In my courses, students work toward this goal by reading scholarship on language politics and critical race theory and workshopping writing projects from their lives outside of school. Doing so challenges students to reconsider what literacy is, who is literate, and where literacies take place.
I have taught introductory and advanced composition courses in four-year and community college settings and tutor/teacher training courses that focus on methods for teaching and assessing writing. I have also served as a university and community writing center tutor, providing in-person and asynchronous online writing feedback to undergraduates, graduate students, and community members.
Writing Program Administration
I have served as Assistant Director of the Writing Fellows program, an undergraduate peer tutoring program that embeds tutors in writing-intensive courses across the curriculum. As a part of this work, I provided operations and teaching support to fifty peer tutors and the instructors of their humanities and STEM courses. I also supervised a writing workshop led by two Fellows.
I lead workshops about inclusivity, multilingual writing, narrative, qualitative methods, and dissertation writing strategies for audiences including pre-service teachers, high school students, undergraduate, and graduate students.
