With any subject, I prefer to let the student arrive at the correct answer or approach on their own terms. If we are having a lesson, for example, on the sonnet form in poetry, I may show them a classic Shakespearean example to start, before moving on to a more modern quasi-sonnet take like John Berryman's "Dream Songs." For the first example, I break down the rhyme scheme and meter in detail, then let them approach the second poem and identify the similarities.
I received my MFA in Creative Writing - Poetry from Georgia College & State University in 2011. Since then, I've been working steadily in the service industry while still publishing my own poetry and taking freelance work. I have three years of collegiate teaching experience in composition, English literature and creative writing.
