Teaching

I have been teaching at the college level for over 15 years, and I continue to be learn as much if not more from my students each semester as they learn from me. This reciprocal relationships helps build a community of learners willing to take risks and improve their writing, analysis, and research skills. Below is a list of the courses I have taught while at ECU. Many of my course websites were on a server that crashed. Over time, I hope to link to syllabi and future courses. If you see a course you want to know more about, feel free to email me.
