Marlene Howell

Marlene Howell likes teaching because she learns so much from the students! Considering the classroom a place where new ways of engaging with content should be explore, she takes pedagogical risks that she feels only fail if noting is learned. A lover of animals, bicycling, good wine, poetry, two-stepping, jazz, contemporary classical music, theatre and outdoor sun. She is firmly committed to peace activism in all its forms as a way of life. Marlene did her graduate work in Nicaragua, interviewing women who were on the front lines of the Sandinista revolution. Finding a reason to smile or dance everyday is one her most consistent forms of resistance to patriarchy.
