Enc 1102 Diagnostic Essay

English Dual Enrollment Teacher

 

As a Dual Enrollment teacher, I will be teaching students university-level material in the high school setting. Students will be treated as adult students, just as they would at university. My job is to prepare effective writers and readers to excel in the college environment.

 

I graduated with a Masters of Arts in English from Arizona State University in 2016. I've lived, worked, and studied in Europe, receiving an Eastern European Studies certificate from the largest university in Romania, the Babeș-Bolyai University. I've taught first year Writing Composition at the university level for three years and ESL for one. I enjoy traveling, teaching, and working with the Humanities artistically and academically.
