I teach English at North Seattle Community College. In a typical quarter I teach a pre-college English class and a composition or literature class. My special interests are American literature and creating learning communities in the college classroom. I teach integrated studies classes with other colleagues where we develop thematic content.

Reading and Writing: Read with a pencil and learn to write and read critically by viewing the demonstration of me "reading" a short story by Guy de Maupassant. Annotation is the art of marking up a text you are reading so you can refer back to the ideas, examples, and remember what you were thinking as you were reading.

English 291 - Literature By Women. This course is the literature course offered in our program of courses in Women's Studies. We read works by women on topics that include their unique perspectives as women and writers who were sometimes limited because of their gender, family roles, or work situations.
English 292- Literature By Women-Global Focus. This course focuses on the writing by women in the world. Usually I will pick one continent to concentrate on such as Women's Writing from Africa. Students will also read some literature from other women writers in the world.
Students in writing classes may find some of the following links helpful when they are doing writing projects. The LOFT is our award winning Writing Center where you can receive one on one tutoring or work on computer programs.
