Since obtaining her Ph.D., Jill V. Jeffery has held two academic positions: a yearlong postdoc at New York University and a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor of Rhetoric and Writing at the University of New Mexico. Her scholarship examines various conceptions of writing competence as understood by students, teachers, writing assessment designers and researchers. In addition to her academic work, Jeffery served for seven years as a public high school English teacher in Texas and in New York. She also worked as a site-based literacy consultant for the New York City Writing Project, a role in which she worked with secondary teachers across disciplines to develop writing-intensive curricula.
