Students will be treated as adult students, just as they would at university. My job is to prepare effective writers and readers to excel in the college environment relating to non-fiction and fiction.
As an English IV teacher, I will be preparing students for their entrance in to college, while also dealing with current events, analytical reading and writing, and British literature.I graduated with a Masters of Arts in English from Arizona State University in 2016. I've lived, worked, and studied in Europe, receiving an Eastern European Studies certificate from the largest university in Romania, the Babeș-Bolyai University. I've taught first year Writing Composition at the university level for three years and ESL for one. This is my second year at MSA! I enjoy traveling, teaching, and working with the Humanities artistically and academically.
