Previous Teaching Experience

I have a relatively long and varied teaching experience for a graduate student. While working on my MA in English at University at Buffalo, I was able to teach freshman composition, advanced composition, and also be a teaching assistant grader for Professor Diane Christian, who teaches several of the University’s most popular lectured courses–Heaven, Hell, and Judgment; Bible as Literature; and Mythology. I continued to be one of Professor Christian’s dedicated TAs until I moved to Columbus to begin the PhD program at the Ohio State University.
After finishing my MA, I continued to teach at UB, and because I was an invited keynote speaker for the Niagara University’s annual conference on Shakespeare’s comedies, I was asked to adjunct there as a sabbatical replacement for their Shakespeare professor. During that time, I taught an upper-level Shakespeare course (cross-listed for English, Theatre, and Education majors), the first part of the British Literature Survey course, and Introduction to Literature.
I moved to Rochester, NY and was hired as a full-time lecturer (four classes per semester), a non-tenure track, yet renewable contract at Monroe Community College. I taught several sections of Composition each semester, but also taught a variety of literature courses–Introduction to Shakespeare, Mythology, Children’s Literature, and Introduction to Literature.
