A Little About Me . . . My name is Anna Belisle Hamann. I am a graduate student at Bemidji State University working on my MS in English, and a speech coach at Bemidji Senior High School. That is Speech, as in forensics, not speech, as in speech pathology. My favorite categories to coach are Great Speeches and Poetry. Great Speeches because it is argument, informative, and a little bit of rhetorical analysis all rolled into one. Poetry because students just don't encounter enough poetry anymore. What my speechers find and bring in for me to read is just the most fascinating stuff.

Let's see . . . what else? I have two children, eleven chickens, a dog, and a cat.

Because of my children, I have actually watched every Godzilla movie ever made. Okay, it only feels like I have watched them all. In reality we just have the first ten.

Besides teaching, my scholarly interests involve fairy tales and feminist psychoanalytic literary theory.
