Thanks to Michelle, we were able to get some funding from the provost to take our entire English 1000 staff to Michigan Council of Teachers of English conference last Friday. They are all undergraduate English students in our department. What you may not know is that they are all teaching a section of English 1000: The Writing Process - a class taken by a lot of our first year students - and they are doing a great job.
You'll recognize a lot of these students from your classes. Be sure to ask them how their classes are going -- Jake Frye, Rob Gardella, Lauren Hill, Owen Horton, Kyle Krol, Randall Seltz, Camila Stewart, Brandon McNab, Megan Allen, Sam Boyd, Laura Butler, Christina Cousino, Sara Dibartolomeo (and Mike Monje and Elena Adkins, our graduate lead teachers).
