Welcome to my webpage! This is a constant work in progress, so please check back periodically for updates. Eventually I will include folders for each course I teach where you will be able to find class information, syllabi, and other documents.

About MeFoster pic

I am originally from Northern Virginia. I lived in that area until 2008 when I moved to Charlottesville, VA to attend the University of Virginia. I have always been a non-traditional student; I went 'back' to school as a working adult to finish my Associate's degree at Northern Virginia Community College and just kept going. I have been a full-time faculty member in English at Tidewater Community College since Fall 2014, and prior to that I spent three years at Ivy Tech Community College in Indianapolis, IN. I taught part-time for six years - first at Northern Virginia Community College and later at Piedmont Virginia Community College. I live in Virginia Beach, Va. with my husband of 20 years, our daughter (who is a student at TCC), and our three dogs.
