I have a passion for helping teachers to improve their practice, forming long-term partnerships to build holistic and inclusive educational solutions. I work in the Center for Teaching, Learning and Mentoring at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, focusing on curricular design and course transformation. I am also active in the UW-Madison Teaching Academy, an organization that works through volunteers to promote, recognize, and support excellence in teaching and learning. I draw on two decades as an instructor of ESL and academic writing. My doctorate is in English from Ulster University, Northern Ireland, and I have taught in Wisconsin, the UK, China, India and North Africa.
