Welcome! This blog is primarily a resource for students enrolled in my courses at HFC. It is also a space for me to provide resources pertaining to college writing, to discuss what we’re doing in (and out) of the classroom, to participate in the field of composition and rhetoric, and to simply share what I find interesting. You’ll probably get a good glimpse at my personal life here as well, because teachers are people too. I teach writing. I also write. This is a place for me to do that.

Here I am on Chapel Beach at Pictured Rocks in June of 2016.

This is a photo of my daughter and me at Blue Hen Falls, in Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

At the top of the main page, you’ll see drop down menus for each course that I am currently teaching. Within each of these menus, you’ll find the syllabus, calendar, and assignment sheets for that course. On the left side of the page, you’ll see this “About” page as well as a page called Resources, which is where you’ll find links to web-based academic writing support and other relevant content. Below that menu, you’ll see a tag cloud. I will tag posts with the names of relevant courses, ie: ENG 132 students might find the posts tagged ENG 132 to be the most applicable. That said, feel free to read what you want to, when you want to, and please leave a comment if you feel so inclined.


Also, just so we’re clear: The content of this blog is my own, and does not necessarily represent Henry Ford College or Dearborn Public Schools.
