•  I am committed to meaningful learning  through activities that foster creativity, inquiry, and  ownership of our learning process.  In a university setting, meaningful learning engages multiple  literacies  and incorporates both writing-to-learn and instructional technologies as topics and methodologies  in our courses. In these ways, engaged learning communities create  audiences for student work as they/we revise  it and learn from mistakes.


  • As a Teaching Fellow  and Writing Fellow at CUNY I have worked with students from diverse backgrounds at Lehman College (General Psychology, 2008-2009), Hunter College (Introductory  and Personality Psychology,  2009-2011) and Medgar Evers College (Writing in the Disciplines Program, 2011-present). My earlier experience involves teaching ELL, theater, and visual arts to children.
