Favorite Courses at DePaul:  Any class with Professor Gautier is an absolute pleasure.  I’ve had such great experience in all classes at DePaul: Anton, Stolar, Sneed, Goffman.  Professor Sirles’ class on Language and Style was one of the more challenging courses, but it allowed me to find new ways to communicate and structure sentences and images.  The 2-year College Teaching Internship facilitated by Professor Goffman is a must for anyone that wants to teach.

Post-graduation Plans:  I will join the University of Lincoln-Nebraska’s PhD in Creative Writing program in August as a teaching assistant.
