Teaching


Most of my work is as a teacher — ten years of high school teaching, then a few years of work as an adjunct professor at Plymouth State University, then at the University of New Hampshire while I pursued a Ph.D. in Literature, and now back at Plymouth State in the Interdisciplinary Studies program.

Because teaching is a major part of my life, I have tend to write about it here at The Mumpsimus. I've especially fallen into the habit of writing about my plans for classes before they begin and then reflecting on them afterward. You can see all of my posts with the "teaching" label by following this link.


Since joining the Interdisciplinary Studies program at Plymouth State University, I have done most of my teaching reflection on my more academically-focused blog, Finite Eyes.

My current syllabi are available here.

If you're curious what I've taught in the past, here are a few samples:
