When I teach literature—from surveys of British literature and Shakespeare, to film production, first-year writing and fiction seminars—I work with students to develop close reading skills, to recognize textual nuance, and to consider modes of reception. I have routinely been named to the campus-wide list of Teachers Ranked as Excellent because students find my courses enliven texts across mediums. In this section you will find evidence of my teaching from student evaluations and awards, pedagogy certifications, and statements on teaching, technology and diversity in higher education.
