My Teaching Philosophy

My aim is to help students become aware of various reading and writing strategies that can improve your overall comprehension of any collegiate text. Ideally, you will leave my class a more fluid and fluent reader and writer; a student who can begin to think critically, form questions, state fact-checked opinions, comments, and gain new ideas about texts. The classroom is founded on clear communication, trust, and mutual respect. This foundation will be encouraged and illustrated through collaborative work that involves in-class projects, group work, and personal discussions about the readings.
