I am a full-time instructor at Salt Lake Community College in the English Department where I teach freshman composition and Introduction to the Study of Language/Linguistics.

 I have a broad history of teaching in varying instructional contexts including Pre-K, bible school, adult ESL at University and at community centers, a prison campus, community college composition in developmental and first-year composition, and introduction to linguistics courses, both CBI/ESL and traditional courses. 

Involvement in tutoring centers has contributed significantly to my teaching. My work has included live face to face, live online and asynchronous online tutoring. These experiences were my original gateway into teaching. Through them, I entered into a mixture of traditional and non-traditional environments and methods.

My teaching is also influenced by experiences with transformational education via Landmark Education and involvement in equestrian sports.
