Biographical Information

  • M.Ed. in Adult Education from University of Arkansas, Fayetteville
  • B.A in English from University of Arkansas, Fort Smith

I received my BA magna cum laude in English from the University of Arkansas Fort Smith with a minor in Rhetoric.  At UA Fayetteville I studied for my masters of English with an emphasis on 20th Century Literature before completing my M.Ed. and receiving my Adult Education Licensure. I currently teach Composition I and II as an adjunct instructor.  It is my goal through various activities, to give my students the knowledge of rhetoric and the developed writing skills they will use in both their academic writing and in their personal lives. I want to broaden their minds while teaching them a love of writing.  My publications include Prisoners, Education, and the GED: Preventing Recidivism presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in Panama City, Fl.  I have also presented a panel discussion on Europe of the 1300’s, and writings on the Life in 14th Century England at the Sigma Tau Delta Conference Oklahoma City, OK.  I have served on the Faculty Senate at UAFS in the past, and also on the Faculty Assessment Committee for general education competencies.
