About

Teaching Academia focuses on issues of teaching and learning in higher education. I share with you my reflections on my pedagogical process which includes both my successes and struggles. Sometimes I have students from my courses write guest posts about their experiences. Additionally:

  • I have a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction, with an emphasis on literacy, from Michigan State University (2005).  I also hold an M.Ed. (Vanderbilt) and B.S. in elementary education (University of South Florida). I taught sixth-grade language arts and social studies for three years in Houston, Texas with the Alief Independent School District.
  • My first academic appointment was at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. I was there for 12 years (2005-2017).
  • I am currently a Professor and Endowed Chair of Adolescent literacy at the University of Wyoming.
