Areas of Professional Interest
I am interested in grammar and writing. While I love teaching advanced reading, I want to explore ways to improve students understanding and use of word forms.
I have given a speech to the Linguistic Society of America in Atlanta, Georgia, on Southeastern Ohio Dialect. I have also given speeches on this topic to the Athens Reading Club. I have organized and hosted teas for community groups and OPIE students to create greater understanding and communication.
