10 years volunteering in public schools, 6 of those in AP English for students making the transition to college. Then taught full-time in the English department of an independent school, then taught writing and literature courses in my doctoral program at Penn, now a full professor of English at Grinnell College.
Inquiry-based, inclusive, with heavy emphasis on discussion and group work.
My current school does not give teaching awards. In graduate school, I won the Penn Prize for Excellence in Teaching by Graduate Students and the Dean's Award for Distinguished Teaching.
