I have a PhD from Syracuse University in Composition and Cultural Rhetoric specializing in the teaching and learning of writing, an MFA in poetry from Sarah Lawrence College and a BA from SUNY Purchase. I am a Professor of Practice on the faculty of the Writing Initiative, where I teach WRIT 111: Coming to Voice, and WRIT 110: Seeing and Writing the World, develop curriculum for WRIT 110 and train graduate assistants to teach. As Coordinator of Campus-Wide Writing Support and Faculty Outreach at Binghamton University, I support Binghamton faculty who want to develop their approaches to writing in the classroom. I have been teaching writing to college students for almost thirty years and and have taught at Sarah Lawrence College, Ithaca College, Syracuse University and Cornell University. My book, Teaching Writing While Standing on One Foot explores the the challenge of designing classes that teach the unique combination of formal and experiential knowledge skilled writers require. It will be published by Sense Press in 2015. My poetry has and essays have appeared in many journals online and in print, including Writing on the Edge, Composition Studies, Ploughshares, The Sun, The Cortland Review, and Subtropics.
