Todd Finley

Todd Blake Finley, PhD, is a tenured professor of English Education at East Carolina University.

He has taught elementary and 8-12th grade English and co-developed the Tar River Writing Project. His BA in Elementary Education and Secondary English was earned at the University of Puget Sound. His MA in English and PhD in Curriculum and Instruction were earned at the University of Minnesota.

An education generalist with special expertise in composition pedagogy (and dilettante in technology), he regularly publishes in national and regional peer-reviewed journals, has keynoted and presented at national and regional conferences, and has been a panelist and presenter on various podcasts and webinars.

Dr. Finley teaches, researches, works with schools and publishes in the field of composition, curriculum, instruction, technology, and collaboration. He lives a ridiculously contented life in North Carolina with his wife (a 5th grade math teacher) daughter (a film major at CCNY) and two poorly trained dogs: Moose and Cocoa. You can follow his professional posts on Twitter @finleyt.
