About Alex: I began teaching college composition in 2006 at California State University, Fullerton. Since this time, I have also been active in writing centers. I enjoy exploring the intersection of technology and writing. In my personal life, I surf, play lacrosse, and spend as much time as I can with my wife and three children. 

My Advice to Walden Students

When you feel overwhelmed, focus on one thing. Zoom in. Find a task to accomplish.
Then, move to the next one. When you feel underwhelmed, zoom out. Think about your big picture.
Remember why you are here. 

My Role as a Teacher

Why I enjoy teaching at Walden

I enjoy teaching because I am inspired by student narratives. Their stories of struggle and accomplishment, in spite of obstacles, drive me in my own life and career.

As an instructor, students can expect that every decision I make is designed to maximize their learning.
