I have helped students find confidence in their writing skills at Highline College for about 20 years. I enjoy working with my students and learning together. I have lived in Sweden, Hungary, and Shanghai, China. I love to read, hike, eat, sleep, learn new things, keep learning about healthy eating, and spend time with my family and friends. I like hearing about what you are learning about right now that excites you. My cat's name is Suki.
The theme of my English 101 class: Learn ways to read and write for college, yourself, and your diverse classmates (future colleagues) while exploring race issues, social justice, the "rules" for writing and your experiences and goals as a writer.
You will be asked to write about things we read, and about your personal experiences that shape your opinions, to help others learn from you. You can decide what essay writing moves you want to learn and practice. We work as a community so that we feel connected and supported to learn, and to share our experiences and knowledge.
