TEDxDavis-Andy Jones-Loki in the Nursery: An Unlikely Path to Tranquility

In this intense personal journey, Professor Jones shares the things in his life that made him the man he is today, and how that was turned upside down we he found a 'Loki' in the nursery. He beseeches all of us to take a step back from our hectic lives and appreciate that sometimes the best idea worth spreading, is no ideas at all. Andy Jones has taught for the English Department and the University Writing Program since 1990. Originally trained as a poet and interpreter of poetry, Andy has taught classes at UC Davis on TS Eliot, the Poetry of the Beat Generation, and Close Reading of Poetry, as well as the Advanced Poetry Writing Workshop. As a Lecturer in the University Writing Program, Andy enjoys teaching pre-professional writing classes, and counts among his favorites "English for Educators: Advanced Writing for Future Teachers" (also known as UWP 104D), which he has taught once or twice a year since 1996. Andy was named "Educator of the Year" by the Associated Students of UC Davis in 2006.
