TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have experience working with adolescents across grades 6-12. For the last 15 years I have worked in higher education and am currently an Associate Professor of Literacy Studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. My areas of expertise are with developing the reading and writing abilities of adolescents - particularly those who struggle. I consider how we can incorporate technology into the classroom in ways that help meet their needs.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like think of my classes as an experience. I work to create experiences that will push and challenge my students but also empower them. I provide structure, but I also provide a fair amount of choice for my students within that structure. As such, they have a lot of power in shaping the direction of the class.
