I approach my classroom as a proto-public space for guided inquiry.
My approach to teaching is informed by my background in rhetoric, classical studies, and writing pedagogy. Whether I am teaching a graduate seminar in ancient rhetoric or an undergraduate course in technical editing, my primary goal is for students to understand how rhetorical theory can help them grapple with uncertainty and cultivate rhetorical capabilities for addressing shared public problems.
