Biography

I grew up and married in Pasadena, CA. My professional experience includes: • I enjoy using my preceding experiences (as a practicing language-arts teacher, curriculum writer, and pedagogy instructor) to help prepare pre-service teachers here at USU. My recreational experience includes: • I keep a poetic journal and write songs; I'm also writing the only novel that I’ll likely ever write • I’ll also admit that I’ve spent about 20 collective years skiing CO: I hope that I’m now ready for UT.


Teaching Interests

Secondary Literacy Strategies and Assessment Design Curriculum Design, Development, and Evaluation Instructional Design and Development Secondary Language Arts Pedagogy Instruction in Rhetoric and Composition Instruction in Literary Analysis and Western Literature

Research Interests

• I carry the conviction that all human action stems from conscious and unconscious philosophical frameworks that require periodic review. • I find that I often return in my thinking to schema theory because repetitive transcultural motifs and archetypes show us how the human brain makes connections and processes information.
