Meet Caroline Collins

Faculty Spotlight

Lecturer of English caroline collins

What are your current responsibilities at Gordon? I teach English, including first-year writing and support courses (but also some American literature, creative writing, and colloquium courses).

Where did you earn your degrees? I earned my degrees in Illinois and Arkansas.

How does your research or scholarship inspire your teaching? My research inspires my teaching because I am fascinated with how different the writing process can be for each for each student and each assignment.

What do you hope students gain from their classroom experience with you? From their classroom experience with me, I hope students learn to work together well, to think carefully and critically, and to analyze and build strong arguments. 

Beyond the Gordon campus, I like to.. write poetry, I play the piano for the services at my church, and I love blues music!
