Work Jill

Jill SalahubI am an Administrative Professional: Editor for the English department at Colorado State University (CSU), where I have worked for the past twelve years. I also occasionally teach CO302: Writing Online, CO150: College Composition, and CO300: Writing Argument. My academic special interests include computers and composition, professional development opportunities for faculty, the use of technology and hypertext/hypermedia in the classroom, multiliteracies in composition, creative nonfiction writing, and writing for the Web. I am a current member of the CSU President’s Commission for Women and Gender Equity and the Administrative Professional Council.

I received an M.A. in English: Communication Development from CSU, having been granted distinction for my thesis, a hypertext written in 2001-2002 entitled “Fear, Happiness and the American Way: The Difficulty of a Simple Life,” (which was unofficially the first hypertext thesis at CSU, unofficial because the graduate school made me turn in a paper copy–what was up with that?!). I have learned a lot since then, first working for six years as the Editor/Lead Programmer for the Writing Studio, and then going on to create various English department project and program websites, some of which are the Composition Program’s website, the gtPathways website (which was so much prettier the way I originally designed it), the Writing Center website, the Animality Studies website, and the CRWCT website.

      How funny! Don’t you just love it here? I’ve been here for about 15 years and the beauty of the land still amazes me. I see you are a Brene’ Brown fan too. Did you see her when she was at the Tattered Cover a few weeks ago? I did a two day workshop with her in Boulder earlier this year and it was fantastic!

        I did not see Brene. How fun that must have been to work with her. BTW, I rarely go back to blogs to see replies on the blog owner’s blog. Would love to connect, maybe you could email me and we could work out a photo shoot or just a walk-about in this lovely land of ours. Thanks for your comments. ;->

    What à talented and accomplished person you are. I admire you for the many things you can do (like making websites and having social media know-how, making and placing beautiful images, following you hunches and inspiration) and thank you for the example you are of a giving and open person. How do find the time to do all you do? And how do you keep your focus?

      Thank you! How do I find the time? I get up at 4:30 am every morning, I don’t have kids, I don’t socialize much (which is okay because I’m an introvert), I only do the very few things that are most important to me, I have a supportive partner who helps, and I also do too much, try too hard, which isn’t the best approach. How do I keep my focus? I am driven by longing, almost obsessed, haunted by it.
