Personal Statement

Personal Statement

I hope my students leave my courses loving some of the literature they've read and with a thirst to read more on their own. Beyond that, I hope the skills they develop--the ability to read closely, with an attention to detail; the ability to think deeply about the works; and the ability to speak and write logically, clearly, and with imagination about what they've read--are those they will carry with them throughout their lives.
