Contribution to Professional Organizations

Here are the organizations I am a member of:

President | Indiana Association for Developmental Education

Since much of my work is teaching and/or mentoring instructors of our English Composition and co-requisite developmental classes, I decided to get involved with the state branch of the national organization (NADE), which is devoted to helping students advance. The primary responsibility was planning the next conference, which took place at my campus in October 2016. This year I serve as president.

Member | National Association for Developmental Education

Member | Association of Writers and Publishers

This association directly relates to my work as a professor of English. The conference provides workshops that cover such categories (under the umbrella of writing) as craft, pedagogy, reading, publishing, and two-year colleges. Also, I use this network to expand my influence through publication—which is an important way to establish credibility in the classroom and to serve as an exemplary representative of Ivy Tech.
