Biography
 
I teach writing, literature, and English education courses for the UWSP English Department and I am also currently the Director of Freshman Engish. My research interests are in drama, television, and nationalism contribute to the cultural studies approach that shapes many of the classes I teach, and these courses are always guided by my teaching philosophy of student participation. Small and large group discussion, multimedia use, and group presentations are the norm for both my writing and literature classes.

I am also interested in instructional technologies; my writing classes frequently meet in computer labs for research and drafting and my literature courses employ other methods of on-line learning; I also teach one of the courses for English Education majors on using technology in the classroom (English 393). This interest stems from my experience as a technical writer and corporate computer training consultant prior to attending Washington State University, where I received my Ph.D. in literature. I am originally from Michigan and received an M.A. in Literature and a B.B.A. degree in Accountancy and Computer Information Systems from Western Michigan University.
