Prof. Writing and Rhetoric Students

Current Students:

Alainar Barbou
Catherine Boone

Current job: English Teacher at Plainfield North High School in Plainfield, IL.
Academic/research interests:
I mostly teach senior-level dual credit courses that focus on rhetoric and argumentation through written expression; however, I am also value and have interest in oral communications, contemporary literature, ethnography and qualitative research, and multimedia/visual studies.  
Why Harley decided to get an online MA in English:
After surviving a pair of near-death, life-changing experiences in the fall of 2014 I realized that despite my love for teaching, I missed the challenge and mental stimulation of being a student. Pursuing this degree exposes me to the rigor I crave while concurrently working with my students. What I learn in this program will improve my teaching and better enable me to help my students prepare for the challenges of life after high school.
