At Normandale I teach English for Academic Purposes (EAP), Developmental Writing, and College Composition. That variety allows me to work with students from world cultures and diverse educational backgrounds. My assignments develop skills and processes so that students not only manage but come to enjoy communicating through writing and speaking.
In my free time, I read anything that grabs me, watch films (new ones and longtime favorites), write screenplays, travel, and walk in all weather.
