Research Areas

cultural rhetorics, Hip Hop pedagogies, student-centered pedagogies


My research interests are rooted in the intersections of cultural rhetorics, Hip Hop pedagogies and community literacy. To the core, I am a student-centered, community minded teacher whose greatest goal is to get students invested in becoming effective rhetoricians who will use those skills to enact real and lasting social change.
