Teaching Philosophy


In both composition and literature courses, I endeavor to balance high standards with scaffolding that meets students where they are. Centrally, I require students to read and write about difficult texts while keeping several things in view: that there are many ways to write well, that I am available to help them, that a person may both analyze and enjoy a text, and that the ultimate goal is for them to acquire skills that they can leverage in future academic and professional contexts.
