Alan LaCerra

Professor of English

Alan LaCerra graduated summa cum laude from the University of Central Florida with a BA, Creative Writing major and mathematics minor, in 2004. Following a one-year stint with The City of Winter Springs's Parks and Recreation Department, he returned to the university, earning an MA in English Literature in 2007. Since then, he has taught first-year composition courses for the University of Central Florida, the Florida Institute of Technology, and Valencia College.

He has earned four Professional Development (PD) certificates from Valencia: the Associate Faculty Certificate (aimed at improving teaching and learning in general), the Digital Professor Certificate (focusing on the online mode of instruction), the Seneff Faculty Development Certificate (all about honors education), and the LifeMap Certificate (about Valencia's goal-setting and -attaining student resources and philosophy). He is still taking PD courses so that he can grow as an educator and continue to help his students learn better.
