Jarret Krone photoI am a first year graduate student at CSU Chico working on a Master's Degree in English.  My emphasis is language and literacy, but I also enjoy creative writing and literature. I came to Chico in 2006 as undergraduate, first as a Construction Management major, then switched to English in 2008.  Since then, I have worked as a writing tutor, academic writing mentor, teaching assistant, and I am currently employed as an instructor of record for a first-year composition course. It has been a wonderful experience being able to supplement my education in English and pedagogy with teaching opportunities. 
I have not yet landed on a topic for my approaching thesis, but my current research interests include innovative uses for technology in the classroom, ways for teachers to construct meaning-centered activities, and the role of mentorship in academic writing classes.
I am fortunate to be working with such enthusiastic and dedicated professors I now call colleagues, as I hone my teaching practices and move toward a Master’s Degree. I can say with certainty that I wouldn’t be where I am today without the inspiration and guidance of Dr. Jaxon, Dr. Fox, and Dr. Fosen.
When not on campus, you can usually find me exploring Bidwell Park, drinking coffee downtown, riding my bike, or spending time with good friends.
