I received my M.A. in English from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 2010. During this time I discovered an interest in Composition Theory and Pedagogy and, more importantly, a passion for teaching. I design my courses to appeal to students from all disciplines by focusing on contemporary, controversial, and complex issues warranting further examination. My goal is to prepare all students for success in a variety of contexts: as students, as writers, and as citizens.
