Teaching Philosophy
I love to write and teach writing because I believe that writing is a compelling way to show others who we are and how we think. I am constantly discovering things about myself when I sit down to write, and I hope to give students the opportunity to use writing as a tool for their own thinking, learning, communication and creativity. The online environment is an exciting one for me because I get to discover new ways to facilitate learning. I also enjoy getting to know my students primarily through their writing. In an online classroom, writing is not viewed as another tacked on activity. It is the thing we do, all the time. Whether through formal paper assignments, class discussions, or emails, my online students’ ideas and personalities come to life on the page.
