Greetings from the pine forests of deep east Texas. I'm a teaching assistant at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas, teaching first year writing. I should graduate with an M.A. in English in December 2017 if I successfully complete and defend my thesis.
The thing I love most about the graduate program at SFA is its emphasis on pedagogy and its commitment to mentoring new instructors. We rotate between first semester "composition and rhetoric" and second semester "research and writing." I'm starting the cycle a second time this fall with composition and rhetoric.
I look forward to learning from experienced first year writing instructors!

Though I'm in a discipline different than your own (Criminal Justice), I'm happy to share my experience in using MindTap as well as general teaching practices.
