About Me

She teaches college composition courses, at both Introduction and Intermediate levels; literature courses; and Basic Skills-level writing strategies. Course readings have centered on themes as various as:  cultural diversity and identities; socio-economic equality and access to upward mobility; gender studies; feminist perspectives; and new historical literary critical theory.  She also advises and coaches students on Transfer Student College Application writing responses.
