    threatening In college papers students represent their own developing ideas and manifest what they are learning from others writing In both of these written forms published texts and student writing I consider it an honor to read another person s carefully crafted text The page is as much a meeting place as anywhere else it s a place that magnifies one s participation as either the reader or the writer Both are roles I take seriously and with great love To help a writer express more fully what she or he intends is a thrilling and humbling experience Literary theory as much as fiction poetry drama or essays draws me to the discipline of English I believe we write our life experience and that it is essential we develop awareness of the critical lenses we use to interpret texts one another and the world Of course experiences happen to people that cannot be put into words and bodily memory is strong but sense making and sharing of memories and identity requires language I believe as Ludwig Wittgenstein asserts that the limits of our language are the limits of our world and that it is critical we carefully develop abilities to express and interpret the diverse complexities of the human condition Being a small part of that great effort is what draws me to literature and writing What about teaching energizes you Teaching keeps me constantly learning and growing I do not know a context more consistently challenging or rewarding than the classroom especially the literature and writing classroom where nothing is given and everything is open to interpretation and representation Close reading critical inquiry and successful writing require attention to one s approaches assumptions and meaning making habits Students in my classes study diverse writers question texts as they would their closest friends or kin and apply literary approaches that expand their ways of thinking and writing My favorite and most certain idea about literature is that in it readers encounter diverse people and psychological historical and cultural circumstances they otherwise would not Writing and literature I believe simply make people more fully developed human beings Who are your role models and mentors My mentors include writers and teachers who model for me the value of distinguishing and honoring individuals feelings backgrounds circumstances and choices of expression and representation My father John Sheriff who has been an English professor for most of his life taught me to interpret texts with a lens that is generous curious and critical and therefore respectful American transcendentalists such as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman helped me think critically and passionately about language nature community and identity Poets such as William Wordsworth Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost enhanced my love of place showing me the mutually transformative relationships of words punctuation time and space Modernist and postmodernist writers display for me the crippling human reality of angst and loss as well as the hope and peace that with them can eventually come for peace

    Addition What draws you to the field of nursing I often hear from nursing students that they want a job that is about something more a job that involves helping people and is not simply just about a paycheck I held similar thoughts as an undergraduate Nursing has been very rewarding in that way I ve had many meaningful interactions with clients that continue to renew my passion for nursing I m thankful that nursing is more than a job it is a professional career that provides concrete ways in which to purposefully engage with humanity What about teaching energizes you I enjoy connecting nursing theory to nursing practice It s exciting to see students work through clinical scenarios and have aha moments as they realize they are putting their knowledge to work I ve also found that many students experience accelerated learning when they find the material applicable and I like facilitating that acceleration Teaching also enhances my own learning Students ask great questions and I continue to learn new things every day as I pay attention to that interaction What are your favorite courses to teach Why are they favorites What do you like about them Community health is my favorite course to teach Nursing students are accustomed to hospital long term care facility and clinic nursing environments We often hear students equate the bedside practice of skills such as IV insertion and medication administration as real nursing Nursing encompasses so much more than such bedside skills I have the joy of expanding students understanding of nursing to include the broader community to see nursing through a population focused lens A previous student of mine was able to see food insecurity over the weekends in elementary school aged children as a nursing problem the school already had free

    prepare future teachers in classroom management with knowledge in areas ranging from the natural sciences Spanish and math to physical education I learned from early on the importance of engaging your audience your students through different pedagogical approaches I learned through my years at this school how valuable it is for a teacher to connect the real world with sometimes difficult subjects such as mathematics biology and chemistry After high school I got a job as an elementary school teacher in the small Christian school were I attended for my elementary years Having graduated from a school that prepared you to become a teacher I was now applying and practicing everything I had learned and saw during my times as a student teacher For the following three years I became the teacher of 36 first graders and during this time it was my responsibility to make sure that by the end of their school year these youngsters were ready to face the rest of their elementary school life with passion discipline and strong academic values Later on after continuing my higher education and focusing on my passion for the natural world I was able to gain experience in a non traditional classroom setting as a field teacher naturalist I was able to do this first with the Catalina Island Environmental Program where I taught marine science wildlife ecology and environmental education to elementary and high school students Subsequently I went to work at the University of Rhode Island W Alton Jones Campus in their Environmental Education Center where I developed lessons and was in charge of student tutoring and student performance evaluations in the outdoors setting I learned about assertive discipline techniques and furthered my pedagogical experience in this setting through classes such as wetland forest ecology wildlife biology and environmental sustainability All these different educational settings have provided me with a different outlook on the influence of a positive education and the value of the unique experiences each individual may have and how those experiences shape and enhance who they are and who they can become What about teaching energizes you The endless source of knowledge that each subject provides not only for my students but also for me is very energizing I feel passionate about every subject I love the learning process that I go through and I try to take my students through that process even when it is labor intensive I have the opportunity of teaching science courses which are difficult for some students and I have the chance to help them develop some skills that will be essential in their future careers Teaching enriches my life and I hope to capture my love for the sciences in my classroom It is very rewarding to see students overcoming their fear of science through the use of everyday examples fun and engaging activities and interactive labs at the end of the semester It makes me feel like together with my students we engaged on a journey to
