Biography 

Being the oldest of nine children, I have always been a natural teacher, guiding all of my siblings through the process of learning how to read and write. Of course, I didn't expect to be a teacher, so you can imagine how much my mother enjoyed saying "I told you so" when it finally happened!

I spent a great many years in college pursing my own dreams (and accumulating a bit of debt) and I really do love to read and write. I feel a tremendous amount of passion for teaching and I am especially interested in writing and all forms of literature. Please know that you will not find another instructor who understands the struggles of working and pursuing educational dreams as I do. 

I am excited to help students learn about the process of writing; I firmly believe that writing is crucial to life success. My goal is to help students work through that process without feeling scared or intimidated. I am extremely well-versed on writing and research, along with MLA and APA formatting and enjoy helping students grasp those guidelines for themselves in order to be successful in all English courses, as well as in future courses. While I make teaching fun, I am also approachable and open to discussing any issues, school or personal, that students wish to talk with me about.

Academic Interests 
It is always exciting to begin any new class, getting to know my students and their interests, whether in 091 or CRW 150. I love teaching the basic courses with EMCC, but someday hope to teach courses such as: Utopian/Dystopian Societies; Victorian Women Writers; Ghost/Gothic Literature; Women's Studies, and creative writing courses overall, but especially those focusing on writing for children and young adults. Although, poetry is certainly quite fun... ;-)
Recent Professional Development Activities 

I have copy edited many projects, from marketing newsletters, to masters theses and dissertations, and even novels. I guess you could say I am always teaching. :-)
