Alright, I will be the sacrificial goat and go first.
Hello, my name is Jennifer Popa and I am your instructor for ENGL 200. I am a graduate of UAF’s MFA in Creative Writing program as of Spring 2014. I’ve been teaching and studying in Alaska for the past three years, but recently moved to Austin, Texas for a post-graduate thaw. So while you’re grumbling about the cold I’ll be bellyaching the heat. I originally hail from Michigan, but before moving to Alaska I lived in Hiroshima and Seattle. I am an avid reader, classroom junkie, soup aficionada, and self-identified “creepy dog lady.’ I rescued a second dog last week, Louie. His great joys in life include chewing, chasing/playing with immobile food and waking me at all hours of the night. Fortunately, he’s cute. Though my first dog, Milo, remains unconvinced.
Anyway, I am an incessant checker of email, so please don’t hesitate to send me a message. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to reading and writing with you this semester!
