I teach all levels of writing and enjoy the variety of approaches and students I work with. I also direct the university writing center, where I oversee 8-10 peer tutors whom I train and supervise. My newest duty is directing our university-wide writing program, the product of our accreditation-mandated Quality Enhancement Plan but with farther-reaching implications. The program includes implementation of a writing-in-the-disciplines program complete with Writing Fellows, or peer classroom tutors, who are carefully selected, trained, and supervised by me as well.
