College English Teacher, Musician, Audio / Video Producer & General Technophile
After working jobs in industries ranging from real estate to retail, I joined California State University, Fresno's Department of English as a lecturer in 2015 where I continue to teach a variety of courses in composition and rhetoric. In 2017 I also began teaching composition, rhetoric, and logic courses at College of the Sequoias in Visalia, CA. My teaching and research interests include peaceful language practices, mindfulness, compassionate pedagogy, ed-tech, and curriculum design for inclusion and resiliency. Yet my passions don’t end with teaching and language.
In addition to helping my students find powerful and peaceful language practices, in 2019 I started Firewell Technology Solutions, a bespoke IT service company serving small businesses.
When my students find out that I also own an IT service company, they’re often as surprised as my clients are when they find out that I’m also college English teacher. And I get it. Scholarship in education and English seems a world apart from a profession in IT. But my view is that there is a synergy between education and technology.
My students often benefit from my technical expertise (particularly during the times of emergency distance learning protocols). My clients often benefit from the skills that come with advanced degrees in English, namely, accurate, compassionate, and collaborative language practices that enable us to work together joyfully and efficiently. So I purposefully cultivate ongoing expertise in both of these fields in order to provide a unique and useful experience for my students and my clients.

Jeremiah is one of our strongest, most innovative teachers. In addition to his leadership, he is also on the cutting edge of scholars in my discipline—as well as a part of an interdisciplinary group of scholars across the nation—who are experimenting with mindfulness in the college classroom.
In my recent observation, Mr. Henry successfully integrated a variety of reading and writing activities into a coherent lesson that helped students move toward the learning goals of the course. I was impressed by his thorough preparation and his skillful execution of this well-planned lesson. Students’ full engagement with the course content showed that they appreciated his care and dedication to their learning.
