Native Oklahoman First Generation college student with Cherokee and Creek American Indian background and my interests are Rhetoric and Composition studies, film studies, and finding innovative ways to teach my students. I have been teaching on the college level for 13 years and love the fact that I encounter and get to know students from a similar socioeconomic background as myself.
