Brandi combines several approaches in her English classes so that students are prepared for multiple writing situations. Some of these approaches include genre theory (preparing students to write for different situations and audiences), writing concisely (encouraging students to broaden their vocabulary in order to say more in fewer words), popular culture analysis (using graphics, along with text, to get students thinking critically about the world in which they live), and collaboration (getting students working together as a team). All of these approaches ultimately help students to cultivate their thinking, reading, and writing skills, all of which will aid them in communicating within their respective careers. Brandi also incorporates technology-based exercises to make students aware of resources that might benefit them in the future, including Doodle polls, Google Docs, Blackboard Instant Messaging, and online portfolios.
Brandi's main area of interest is British Literature with an emphasis on Shakespeare and Victorian Literature (especially Dickens, Gaskell, Rosetti, both Brownings, and Tennyson), though she enjoys reading almost any time period. When Brandi isn't teaching, preparing to teach, or reading (usually Victorian) literature, she enjoys the outdoors by rollerblading, snowboarding, scuba diving (she is SSI certified), and traveling around the world.
