Teaching Philosophy

Writing is not only still a viable and powerful form of communication, but is also an opportunity to organize one's mind and enlighten the audience. To become a stronger student and writer, one must start with attitude. Thoughts such as 'I always was a poor writer', 'I just don't have the talent to write', and 'I don't have anything to say' must be abandoned at the door. Through group work, class lectures, and individual conferences, we will be able to move from a basic start to a solid grasp of analytical writing.
