Associate Director, Writing Center,
Instructor, English Department
I started teaching at St. John's University in 2001; before that I
taught at Brown University (as a graduate assistant), Queens
College, and John Jay College of Criminal Justice. In 2002, I
began working as a director in the Writing Center. At St.
John’s I’ve taught creative writing, literature, composition, and
pedagogy classes. I’m also an advisor for Sequoya
(the student literary journal at St. John’s) and the Humanities
Review (a journal published by graduate students in the
English Department). With the help of Writing Center Consultants, I
also lead several community outreach projects—including an ongoing
series of writing/literacy workshops at Bread and Life Soup
Kitchen/Community Center in Brooklyn, along with partnerships with
NYC high schools geared towards fostering a stronger writing
culture at each respective school.
