    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

New Faculty

The English department is on the hunt to fill two new faculty positions and this week was the final round. All of the candidates visited campus, participated in meetings, taught a current English class, and spoke with some students. I was able to give 2/4 Shakespeare candidates a tour of our campus and see them teach. The first candidate was a native to Duluth looking to return home. He gave us a presentation on Shakespearean sonnets, specifically how altering the form can be used to make an artistic statement or change the meaning of the poem. The second was an older gentleman from London, England. Surprisingly, Duluths weather was one of the things that drew him to apply for this area. He also said he immediately fell in love with Lake Superior. He presented a sonnet to our class as well, however, he focused on just the one and how speaking the poem aloud is important to the style. He had us up, moving, and even singing! I am excited to hear who the English department chooses, even if I won’t be taking classes with the new faculty member.
