Biography


Teaching Philosophy:

My Comp II class is an Introduction to Literature class with a strong writing component.  Unlike Comp I where students read a large number of professional non-fiction essays, here they read works of literature, specifically short stories and plays. All the writing here  is persuasive, focusing largely on the issues the works tap into, and students also get to work with basic research skills which they are expected to use in other courses. Thus, students come out of my classes knowing to comple both individual and group work assignments, which are sharpening both their independent and team-playing skills which they will need to be an active part of working America.

I have a very no-nonsense approach to my classes, and the secret to student success is the following: You have to do your part. Read ALL my instructions, read all the assignments and submit your assignments by their due dates, and the grade I record will represent your best self.
