View Profile 
Technology and the Englisg classroom (composition, lit, rhetoric, etc.) is of particular interest to me. I'm also a published creative writer, drawing from my years growing up on the Fort Peck Sioux and Assiniboine Indian Reservation in NE Montana.

I hold BAs in English, Theology, and English Education, an MA in English Literature, and a PhD in English with a creative writing emphasis.
I teach writing and lit courses at Dakota State University, South Dakota's flagship university for integrating technology into higher education, and the region's only NSA-certified university. Faculty here are expected to utilize advanced technology regardless of discipline.
I received a 2007 Governor's Seed Grant to develop software to speed and improve the feedback process in assessing writing.
I teach online, hybrid, and traditional English classes.
I am very familiar with MSDOS (all versions) and every iteration of the Windows OS; I am functional in Mac, Linux, and UNIX, but only an amateur. I am very familiar with PC hardware, having never bought a full PC since 1992. I have since then upgraded and done the labor myself. I can write simple programs in Basic and Pascal, and the NSIS scripting language.
I have published both critical and creative work, and have presented at regional, national, and international conferences.
I have also taught English and Speech at the high school level.
