My highest goal as a teacher, with journalism in transition, is to encourage and help students to develop what Paolo Freire calls an “especially flexible, critical spirit.”
SOJC Track Bureau
We cover all meets at Hayward Field, including the Pre, NCAA championships and Olympic trials: 443 stories in four terms. I’m bureau chief. My students are reporters.
As co-founder and co-director of the SOJC’s peer writing support program, I train undergraduate writing coaches and conduct research into writing instruction.
I conduct research on and build curriculum with principles of engaged journalism, which I believe is crucial not only for journalism, but for our democracy.
As a full-time journalist and now a freelancer, I have specialized in sports, women’s issues, higher education, and journalism education. You can see my work here.
