TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught at the university level since 2006, but in my pre-higher-education years, I was a freelance journalist and photographer (10 years) and a media buyer for advertising agencies (eight years). I bring my non-academic experiences into my classrooms and my assignments. Currently an assistant professor of multiethnic rhetorics at a state university and I teach introduction to college composition, college composition, advanced composition, rhetoric of literature, and contemporary indigenous rhetorics. In addition, I also served as director of the University Writing Center for three years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Creative, critical pedagogy.
