Melissa Derr


I am an experienced EAP teacher originally from Pennsylvania. My MA degrees are in English and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I have taught in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Slovakia, as well as Florida.

I am happy to have had the chance to teach on West Campus for 3 years, and now I am very happy to be able to teach on East Campus. My favorite classes to teach are grammar and writing because I believe they are very important to students' success in college and beyond.

Important Announcements

Thanks for checking in! Specific assignments and course announcements will be available in Blackboard after the courses begin. Please have your course materials ready for the first day of class so that you can get to work as quickly as possible. (DO NOT DO any "tests" in Blackboard until I assign them). I look forward to meeting you and working with you. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me. I check my e-mail frequently. I hope you have a great term! MD
