Dr. Robert Schachel

Professor of English;
Learning Support Communications Faculty Consultant

I love living in Orlando, and I am proud to be a part of the Valencia family since 2007.

Although I love literature, I have taught writing more than any other subject. Writing is always a part of any English class, and it is the backbone of human communication. I love helping people learn to do it well. I take a practical approach to teaching writing as a practical skill people find useful in whatever they choose to do with their careers.

My academic interests are Nineteenth-Century American literature, the Gothic genre, psychoanalytic approaches to literature, and materiality of text and representation. However, I love spending time riding my Harley Davidson and camping out in Florida’s nature. That’s my bike. Her name is Lenore.

I look forward to seeing you in my class.
