Welcome

Welcome to my modest corner of the web.  The purpose of my site is to showcase my career as a compositionist, a teacher and promoter of writing and literacy.  In my seventeen years as a writing teacher, I've worked for a handful of institutions, from two-year schools to universities, in different parts of the country, and I've taught a diverse collection of students during that time.  I'm a passionate and dedicated teacher, a relentless optimist, and a lover of human beings.  I look for the best in folks, and invariably, I find that people want to grow and learn.  As a professor of mine always said, all students have something they are burning to tell the world.  My job is to find that spark and help build it into bonfire.  I'm a teacher, a professional, sometimes a gate-keeper, sometimes a coach and facilitator, but at the end of the day, I am a member of each student's college team, doing my part to grow literacies.
