I go by the handle TattooedProfessor because that is what I am. I am an avid reader, occasional writer and full time questioner. I am an assistant English professor who can’t get enough of summer vacation. I am using this space to collect my reading and teaching notes along with some original writings. If the material is in quote marks then it came directly from the page. If there are no quote marks I am either making a direct comment or I’m putting the information into my own words. Feel free to use my teaching notes to help you in class or to teach a class yourself.
