I am Professor of English Education and American Literature. I am also a faculty member in the Department of Women's and Gender Studies. I was the 2017 recipient of the Ronald W. Collins Distinguished Faculty Award for Teaching at Eastern Michigan University.
My scholarly and teaching interests frequently overlap, focusing on English teacher education, literature pedagogy, local literature, American women writers, and multi-modalities in literacy education.
Currently, I serve as the coordinator of English Education programs. A past co-director of the National Writing Project site at Eastern Michigan (EMWP), I have been involved with local and national teacher research networks for close to 20 years, most recently to support site-based teacher research and teacher inquiry groups in southeast Michigan.
I am co-editor of the book Teaching the Literature Survey Course, published by WVU Press, which has been nominated for the 2019 Teaching Literature Book Award.
