Meagan RodgersAssistant Professor of English, Writing Center Director
In my former life, I was an accountant for one of those firms that you see sponsoring major golf tournaments. I hung in there for three years, ultimately leaving to pursue a career in teaching. As a student in the MA in Composition program at the University of Akron, I got paid to teach introductory writing to first year college students. That was 10 years ago, and I've loved every challenge and success since. I am committed to a life and a career as a teacher of college writing.
During my PhD studies at the University of New Hampshire, I had the great joy to work with professors who were great teachers and great scholars. I focus my own teaching and research on making the classroom as pedagogically engaging and challenging as possible.
At USAO, I teach courses in composition, rhetoric, creative nonfiction, literature, and race. I also direct the university's Writing Center. I advise the USAO Lit Club, The Accent (undergraduate arts & literature journal), and sit on several university committees.
