Reviews of my teaching
A student media professor from Northwestern State University of Louisiana wrote this review of my conference session “How Do You Teach Writing?”—a session that I’ve presented more than a dozen times at national conventions dating from 2006 to the present day. More recently, the University of Vermont published a short news story in which Natalie DiBlasio Summers, the director of social media at Apple, discusses how my teaching impacted her education, career and life.
My teaching philosophy
My philosophy of teaching and media advising has changed a bit over time, but one thing that hasn’t changed is my belief that, to be successful, students should be involved with the communities around them.
