Following graduation from King's in 2008 I was eager to continue learning about literature and culture. I took a year off before going on to complete a Masters and a PhD in English at McMaster University. I am now an Assistant Professor of English at Briercrest College and Seminary in Caronport, Saskatchewan where I teach Canadian and American literature.
The example of Christian scholars, careful readers, and committed teachers I found during my time at King's showed me how to conduct myself in my career now. On a deeper level, they modelled what it looks like to be a lover of the written word and how this love can lead to a deeper faith.
Notably, Dr's. Tina Trigg, Arlette Zinck, Philip Mingay and Leslie-Ann Hales had the most immediate and largest impact on my life as I took most of my classes with them. Since leaving King's, I have had the pleasure of deepening my relationship with these teachers at academic conferences over the last few years, and in our shared work as teachers of literature.
