"For the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs." -George Eliot, Middlemarch

I am a full-time instructor in English at De Anza College. I am a regular instructor in the Latina/o Empowerment at De Anza (LEAD) program. In 2016-17, I will also be teaching in the IMPACT AAPI program. I love working with De Anza students and I'm thrilled to be a part of the De Anza community.

My goal is to help students build strong reading, writing, and thinking skills that will serve them both in and out of the classroom. In my writing classes,
  • the work is collaborative - students work with me and with each other.
  • we focus on topics such as climate change and disaster, migration, racism, and cities.
  • I encourage students to understand reading and writing in relation to communities outside of the classroom.
If this sounds like fun, then sign up for a class with me!

Winter 2017 Courses:
My Winter 2017 EWRT 1A courses will focus on the Hamilton musical in relation to race in America. My Winter 2017 EWRT 211 course will focus on migration and gentrification. The syllabi for these courses are posted below.

I am still working on my syllabi for Spring 2017, and I will post them near the end of Winter Quarter. If you have any questions about my Spring courses before then, please email me!
