Esther Coombes


Education and Professional Experience:
I am a graduate of Simmons University in Boston, MA, with a Master’s Degree in Literature. I am also the wife of a retired Marine, so I have taught, literally, from one end of this country to another: from Massachusetts to Hawai’i and Wisconsin to Florida.

Teaching Duties:
As a tenured Professor, I teach online and traditional courses in ENC 1101, ENC 1102, and Introduction to Literature. I have also taught Reading and preComp I courses, as well as EAP and seminars in Reading and Study Skills.

General Teaching Philosophy:
My teaching philosophy is that everyone is capable of learning – no matter the person’s age, nationality, etc. I don’t care if you are pink with purple polka dots or have hair that looks like that! I do care about your investment in our course.

Outside Interests:
My family and friends, reading, writing, water aerobics, scrap booking, singing, gardening, and fundraising for worthy causes.
