"I teach mainly Freshmen Composition classes, which all students must take but many would rather not! Therefore, I try to teach the class where the students understand the importance of effective written communication in our global society. My enjoyment of the class comes from the students themselves, who must get along with other students who are not just from other areas of Kentucky, or the United States, but from other countries and are of different races, cultures and religions. The environment I try to create in the classroom is one of understanding, cooperation, and compromise — some of the same elements I attempt to get across to students in the essays we read in class to create ideas for writing assignments."
