teaching

I have taught first year writing, professional writing, and creative writing in a variety of contexts.

  • University of Michigan: Eng 125: Writing and Academic Inquiry; Eng 225: Academic Argumentation
  • UC Berkeley: R1A: Accelerated Reading and Composition
  • Holy Names University: Education 297: Professional/Academic Writing Practicum
  • National University: Writing Center Consultant
  • UC Irvine: 39B: Critical Reading and Rhetoric; 39C: Argument and Research; and creative writing: Intro to Poetry Writing and Intermediate Poetry Writing
  • UC Irvine Poetry Academy: Creative Writing for 3rd and 4th graders

Through these teaching experiences, I have developed a range of syllabi, as well as syllabi designed for multilingual writers. In general, my syllabi are informed by (1) genre and discourse analysis, with the goal of helping students cultivate their existing sense of genre/disciplinary awareness, (2) appreciation for linguistic and cultural diversity, as well as neurodiversity, and (3) an intersectional approach to identity and literacy. Peer review also plays a major role in my courses.
