While completing Teaching Writing I and her final document, Dalene Fisher lined up a job to teach three sections of Composition I at Oklahoma Wesleyan University upon graduating. Dalene has five years of experience teaching high school English and maintains a blog, The Musty Study
, to encourage the hesitant reader to discover the timely nature of the old classics in English literature.“UI&U has enabled me to reach my goal of teaching at the university level” explains Dalene. “From engaging in challenging writing exercises, I am able to empathize with my own students and have been truly stretched as a writing teacher. I've shed tears of both sorrow and joy! I loved teaching high school, but I feel prepared now to move to a new level of instruction."
