Paul Dorman, Reporter

My office is in the Northwest Building, which is the same building my classroom is in: NW 109. I teach in the Humanities Division, and most of the classes I teach are the ones most students seem to dread: Composition I and Composition II. Although grading essays can seem arbitrary to students, I always remind them that I’ve never set out to be a “tough” grader, only a fair one.


Whether it’s a face-to-face class or an online offering, I try to not only challenge my students, but also be available to help them succeed in the course (as long as they reach out for help. One of my favorite sayings is, “The one thing I’ve never got good at in the twenty-six years I’ve been here is reading students’ minds!)


In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my partner—she also works at Lake Land—my daughter, and our two rescue dogs; working in the yard, watching movies and football games with close friends, and going out to eat. (That may seem terribly boring but it’s a life I enjoy.
