Joined 6 years ago from Midwest
My name is Johnna, and I am currently part of the associate faculty of a university in Indiana where I teach first-year composition. I am very blessed to work in a career that combines the three things I love to do most - those being to read, write and teach.
I usually teach in the traditional brick and mortar, F2F (face-to-face) setting, but will, this fall 2012, teach an online class for the first time. I have a Bachlor's degree in Journalism, a Master's degree in Higher Eduation with a specialization in College Teaching and Learning and just (Spring 2012) completed a Teaching Writing Certificate. I am now beginning work on a Doctorate in Adult Education with a specialization in Urban Education.
I also love to read - a lot. So, one day, one of my friends, who knew that I also love to write, suggested that I write reviews on the books that I read. I did it for one series of books, and loved it.
On a personal note, in my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, attending the symphony, walking, traveling and collecting lighthouses and lighthouse memorabilia. Outside of reading, my favorite pastimes are listening to music and watching old and or classic movies. Some of my favorite movie stars are Doris Day, Debbie Reynolds, Bette Davis, Barbara Stanwyck, Suzanne Pleshette, Barbara Eden, Lindsay Wagner, Ann Jillian, James Garner and Tim Matheson. My all-time favorite movies are Anne of Green Gables, Jaws and Rocky.
Finally, last summer I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. This condition has taught me many life lessons the most important being that we are all much stronger than we think we are.
