Research interests: Modern American poetry; the Beat poets (or more affectionately, the “Beatific” poets)

Teaching goals/philosophy: As a teacher, my primary goal is to help students come into their own voice. I try to create a classroom environment where students feel that their contributions are valued by their peers and by me. I encourage my students to find out what interests them, pursue those interests with a hunger, and to share what they discover with the academic community. My hope is that students realize their potential not only as readers, but also as authors of great ideas.
