Additional Information

I have been devoting a lot of time in recent years to the teaching of large introductory sections of various forms of literature. I find these particularly rewarding as it allows me to provide students with exposure to literature they might not have otherwise read widely. I hope to continue teaching these classes because they serve as a great introduction to what the literature offerings in our department have to offer them to enrich their college experience.
