What I did at JSRCC was work as a teacher. I taught courses in poetry
writing, fiction writing, composition, American lit, and ESL (English
a second language).
So what?! It's easy enough to list courses--but there are
150 other full-time faculty members and more than 400 part-timers at
college, all with similar lists. What's so different about what I
did? Not much, in most respects. I went to class. I went to committee
I met with advisees. I read memos from the administration.
But I think I did some things differently than most other
and I'd like to tell you about them, if you're willing...
Yes? Then please try this essay
on teaching writing that sums up a lot of why I work
than most other teachers. It probably won't bore you.
Or write to me
about teaching--your ideas about how to do it well--and I'll
write you back.
