Teacher

 

I am a teacher of all ages, from elementary students to seniors.

 

I began my career after receiving my teaching degree through the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I taught high school English at Nazareth Academy in La Grange Park and the University of Chicago Laboratory School in Chicago.

 

I then turned to college teaching, where I taught four years in Columbia College Chicago’s First Year Writing Program. I presented several talks on bringing the college’s yearly Critical Encounters theme into the classroom. Working with two other instructors in 2010, I conducted a semester-long project and symposium on that year’s theme, Fact & Faith.

 

In 2014, I began co-teaching a Poetry Workshop and Discussion Group for the Lincoln Park Village with my partner and fellow poet, Todd McCarty. Together we worked with seniors, ages ranging from 70-90, to become deeper readers and writers.
