TEL: (315) 267-3197


As Program Coordinator for the Adolescence English Education Program, I am fortunate to be able to teach a number of different courses. I regularly teach the MST and undergraduate methods courses, as well as the Intro to Education course and Young Adult Literature. I love teaching - it is a true passion - and to be able to help others learn how to teach gives me such joy and satisfaction. Plus, I love reading and developing new pieces of writing to share. I also care greatly about my community and try to get involved in even the smallest ways. I believe kindness, inclusion, and positivity matter - we need to take care of ourselves and others because we're all in this together.
