Welcome to Freshman Composition! I am so happy that you are taking my course.
Here is a little about me:

My background includes undergraduate degrees in English and Music from Northwestern University, a master’s degree in teaching English from Rollins College, and a doctorate in curriculum and instruction from University of Florida. I have extensive background in developing classroom and online curriculum as a senior instructional systems designer for General Dynamics Information Technology.
I am a Native Floridian who grew up in Orlando and graduated from Edgewater High School in Orange County. I have been married 30 years, have two teenage sons, and 2 cats. I love to travel, read, and sing.
