  • writer teacher accidental rustic citizen-scholar
  • Writing and TeachingI am a writer and a teacher of writing. (I’ve been telling stories since I can recall. And I began teaching in 2004. Naturally, I really like the written word!)
  • Citizen-ScholarI also consider myself an engaged citizen who happens to be anacademic: I read and review scholarly publications, I conduct research,and I am concerned with topics & issues related to higher education.BUT I believe academia must remain grounded in the communities inwhich it is situated. I consider myself a socially concerned scholar, andas such my research, teaching and service reflect this interest.
  • Accidental RusticAlthough I live in the city in Northwest Ohio with my husband,son, and daughter, I (and really, “we”) attempt to live as “green”as possible. I may consider myself a gadget gal, relativelyspeaking, I see my world converging… where high– and low –tech intersect: 2 dogs, 5 chickens, a modest garden, yeast-bread starters, rug-hooking, and more…
  • I mention all of this because, as many teachers recognize, ourexperiences outside of the classroom directly inform whathappens inside the classroom.And, as Fear et al eloquently assert in Coming to CriticalEngagement: An Autoethnographic Exploration, we must“recognize diverse expressions of engagement” (18). And theseinvolve definable moments, as well as multiple discourses acrossthose moments.
  • In my teaching and research, I strive to define the myriad wayswriters engage in communication while exploring meaningful topicsand issues.This site, then, is an attempt to represent my professional work andthe myriad ways I engage with writing over the span of my career.If you would like to contact me, please email me(engagedrhetoric@gmail.com).
