How has being an English graduate from Duke University helped shape your professional success?: 

Perhaps it's obvious, but my English degree (along with my Physics degree) helped get multiple teaching job offers at private schools coming out of college. I have maintained relationships with former professors, TAs, and peers that have aided me in keeping my thinking fresh and developing curriculum. I still teach a number of texts that I first studied as an undergraduate at Duke.
