English Faculty Archives

We take great pride in the full-time English faculty who have served before us. Many of them remain our colleagues, our friends and our kindred intellects. Because of their tireless efforts and innovations, our Department continues to improve our students' lives. Also responsible for that legacy is the support of hundreds of devoted part-time English instructors who rallied to our aid and were integral to our growth as a department.

 

RETIRED and DEPARTED FACULTY
During the initial years of Grossmont College, only a handful of faculty were available to establish nascent departments. Some with multiple teaching disciplines served the needs of two, sometimes three, departments within the same Division. As the College grew and hired new faculty specializing in departmental subjects, some of these initial faculty left the English Department to teach full-time in other departments. A few others soon after took tenure positions elsewhere, or followed other careers and interests. The majority, however, prevailed and led long, prestigious careers within our Department, and served on District committees, councils, and even governing boards to shape the future of the College. Below is our proud roster of retired or departed full-time faculty who dedicated all or part of their professional lives to this Department. (Note: Even though some faculty may have worked for many years—even decades—as part-time instructors before being hired full-time, the start dates provided below indicate when faculty officially began tenure positions.)
