Open Quote
Garrett Willis, BA in English 2016: "I was recently hired as the English teacher for Maricopa High School for the 2017-2018 school year (I will be the only high school English teacher at Maricopa). Since I am still in the credential program, I will be classified as an intern. I will receive full pay and benefits, but I will work closely with advisors at CSUB, as well as with a mentor on campus at Maricopa High." Kristin Galetano - "In the Fall of 2017, I will be studying at the University of Edinburgh – one of Scotland’s ancient universities and the 6th oldest in the English-speaking world. Authors like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes) and J.M. Barrie (Peter Pan and Wendy) attended the University and its literature program is among the best. I’m working toward my Master’s degree in “Literature and Society: Enlightenment, Romantic, and Victorian.” Close Quote
