I am Jennifer S. Roudabush, and I teach expository writing and history to middle- and high-schoolers at the Well-Trained Mind Academy. I love working with young people and learners of all ages, and my scholarly interests tend to circle around writing and rhetoric, narratology, digital humanities, digital pedagogy and connected learning.
When I’m not teaching, lesson planning, responding to student work, researching, or writing, I’m probably at home telling my cat “No!” She likes to get into trouble, make a mess, and then pass out.
If I’m not cleaning up something the cat did, I’m probably spending time with my family or playing with my young sons. So far, they and the cat seem to share a lot of the same interests (see above).
I also love to binge watch television shows, hike, and practice photography (one of my favorite photos features a dog who is quite certain that the town of Guanajuato, Mexico has thrown of a parade in his honor, and that it is just a lucky coincidence that Pope Benedict XVI happened to be in town too. That photograph is by Yuri Cortez, and is owned by Getty Images).
