I believe that writing can be a way to grow, learn, and reflect on how we connect to other people in a shared society. Through brainstorming, revising, and sharing our work with others, we can learn so much about ourselves and the world around us. But often, the stress of school, and its deadlines, grades, and rules, makes it hard to think of writing in this way. My teaching and research, which I started during my Ph.D. at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, is all about how school shapes our understanding of what writing can do. I am also interested in questions of equity in writing, especially in terms of the challenges of assessing writing equity. In my teaching, I strive to help students become reflective of the way that structures of assessment shape their concept of what counts as good writing.
