Academic/Research Interests
Involving the elements of fiction into creative non-fiction and non-fiction writing; dissertation investigated connections between emotional intelligence and basic writer skills.

Teaching Philosophy
Since there is such difficulty in overcoming the delay between what a student will learn in the composition classroom and their realizing the importance of that learning, everything possible must hinge upon making the classroom material and the concepts relevant.

Also, because there are such differing skill levels among students in the Core writing sequence, assignments must have a leveling that challenges the better writers while encouraging the weaker ones.
