About Curtis

I earned my Ph.D. in Russian history, with minors in European History and Comparative Labor History. I have lived abroad in the Russian Federation and have traveled extensively in Europe. My time at school and abroad has helped me to appreciate the importance of being a global citizen, of engaging with others to educate both ourselves and others.

In addition to taking numerous courses in Russian language in graduate school, I completed two intensive, summer Russian-language programs, the first in Moscow and the second at Indiana University's heralded SWSEEL program. I have taught Russian language at both the community college and university level. I created a Russian-language program at a university.

I have taught a number of courses on the methods of writing, in which I worked with students to compose a process-oriented, semester-long research essay. My history courses typically are also writing-intensive classes. I earned a Ph.D. in history. I have taught numerous courses in both European and World history.

I love teaching. There is something wonderful about the educational process, and, when a student begins to make that connection between cause and effect, to understand the core issues, it is priceless.
