Welcome to my Delaware County Community College web page. I am a committed educator and scholar and chose to leave a big college in Colorado to be a teaching-focused professor here at DCCC. My teaching approach centers on empowering students through augmenting their critical thinking and writing capabilities, as well as fostering in each student at once a sense of individual agency and a connection to the broader community. My courses involve highly interactive classroom activities and digital/multi-modal contexts to promote a learning-focused praxis. I am committed to ensuring the skills my students obtain from my courses are easily and explicitly transferable to the professional world. I teach Composition and Literature courses that cover a broad range of topics as well as English literature courses (world literature, American literature).
