Educational Philosophy

I believe it is my job as a writing teacher to create an environment in which all students know they can learn and succeed. Writing is a tool that helps all of us express our ideas to others. I believe that with practice, everybody can strengthen their writing skills.

Areas of Interest

To do well in college, students must be able to write clearly and to understand the different writing situations they will be in. Writing is a tool for students to use. I'm interested in finding ways to help all students use this tool skillfully.


I've taught writing for about 10 years at Tacoma Community College and before that at colleges in Wyoming and Idaho. I've also worked as a journalist for newspapers in Wyoming and Idaho, and in addition to my work at TCC, I teach one journalism class per quarter at the University of Washington, Tacoma.
