About me

I teach writing theory and practice courses in the English department and direct the Writing Center at Metropolitan State University of Denver. Before joining the MSU Denver faculty in 2008, I taught at Red Rocks Community College for thirteen years.

In addition to teaching and directing the Writing Center at MSU Denver, I work with writers on all aspects of their writing processes. I enjoy working with groups of writers in a workshop setting and presenting to groups on subjects such as

  • overcoming Writer’s Block
  • using writing to improve your thinking
  • being a more productive writer
  • moving from draft to publication
  • tackling a large writing project, such as a dissertation, article, or book

I also work with teachers on teaching writing and teaching with writing, presenting and conducting workshops on topics such as

  • teaching with web 2.0
  • improving feedback to writers
  • using writing as a thinking tool as well as an assessment tool
