Instructor in English
Before joining the faculty at Penn State, Angela spent eight years as an instructor in English, American Studies, and journalism at her undergraduate alma mater, Youngstown State University. She has also worked with the Upward Bound program, teaching college-prep essay writing to inner-city high school students, and she spent four years as a copy editor at the Tribune Chronicle in Warren, Ohio.
Angela's research interests vary widely and include addressing the needs of under-prepared and non-traditional students, as well as examining race, gender, and class construction in media and pop culture.
When not engaged in academic pursuits, Angela enjoys reading (everything from Jane Austen to J.K. Rowling), traveling (everywhere from Pymatuning to Rome), and spending time with her family.
