Anne’s scholarship and research interests include anti-racist and anti-ableist pedagogy in online course design, writing program administration, with an emphasis on self-placement and outcomes assessment. Her current scholarly project, “Authentic Virtual Communities: Building Online Instructor Presence and Student Engagement Using Multimodality and Technology,” examines instructor and social presence strategies for online course design, through the integration of multimodal course instruction and assignments, inclusion of interactive social learning applications, and creating an authentic, approachable instructor persona.

Previously, her project “Decolonizing the Composition Classroom” analyzed colonized academic spaces and synthesized research to improve the first-year writing experience for marginalized populations in her own classrooms, through the integration of a visual syllabus, inclusion of marginalized writers in readings and intercultural rhetoric, and encouraging active response from students through integrated revisions assignments.

At UNM, Anne currently teaches freshman composition and technical communication courses (face-to-face, remote scheduled, and online). She serves on the Core Writing Committee. Anne has been nominated for the Susan Deese-Roberts Teaching Assistant award (2019), received the Core Writing Outstanding New Teaching Assistant of the Year (2019), and has received the Arms Endowed Fund for American Literature Studies (2018).
