Introduction to College Writing; Introduction to Literature; Writing in the Disciplines


I earned my B.A and M.A. right here at Western Kentucky University and after teaching part time for several years, I worked on my doctorate at the University of Mississippi (1997-2004), focusing on dramatic literature.  Having completed my coursework and beginning the written exams, I discovered that Western was hiring full-time instructors, so I returned to WKU, returned to what I love doing the most—being in the classroom, being with the students, in other words, teaching.

I have been back at WKU for the past several years and at times feel as if I have never left.  However, I did bring back to Kentucky a new husband, an adult son, and a new appreciation for the area that I left.  I hope to finish out my career teaching right where it all began so many years ago:  in Cherry Hall at Western Kentucky University.
