What I do at SSU:

I teach graduate courses in writing pedagogy and theory, including the teaching practicum for new graduate teaching associates. As Writing Program Director, I craft programmatic outcomes and goals, participate in ongoing conversations about writing in our department, college, and university communities, and direct professional development opportunities for lecturer faculty. I’m happy to advise on theses dealing with writing pedagogy, writing centers, rhetorical theory, and digital tools and practices.
