I am a passionate community college English professor and newly minted PhD from UC Davis, where I studied Education with a designated emphasis in Writing, Rhetoric, and Composition Studies. I also hold an MA in English from San Jose State University.
Teaching. I have taught English at the college level for eight years, and I love it! I currently teach composition, critical thinking, and literature courses at Sierra College and Solano Community College. In the recent past, I have taught face-to-face and hybrid courses in the first-year writing programs at UC Davis and San José State University and served as a TA for “Writing and Visual Rhetoric.”
Administration. Nationally, I served as a reviewer for the PraxisWiki section of Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology and Pedagogy, the top-tier journal Computers and Composition, and for the Computers and Writing Conference and proceedings. At UC Davis, I have served as co-chair for four committees and organizations. At SJSU, I served on the composition committee, helping make key decisions with folks from across the English department.
Pedagogy-Informing Scholarship. I have published my scholarship in Computers and Composition, Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, Pedagogy, and the Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy. I’ve also presented at national conferences such as Computers and Writing, the Conference on College Composition and Communication, and the Council of Writing Program Administrators.
