Miles McCrimmon J Sargeant Reynolds Community College

Miles has been teaching English Composition and American Literature for nearly twenty years, since earning his Ph.D. from the University of Texas in 1992, at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College in Richmond, VA. Having helped more than 3,000 students at Reynolds make the transition into college-level thinking and writing, like most any teaching veteran, he developed a few ideas that aren’t adequately represented or played out in the array of traditional textbooks that are currently available. Miles has been a department chair, administered dual enrollment programs in area high schools, helped to develop learning communities linking courses across disciplines, and made articulations with four-year colleges and universities, so he brings some knowledge and experience of how individual disciplines and curricular levels fit together – and more important, how they don’t. Even though he has had a heavy teaching load (three to five writing courses a semester), he has managed to publish a fair amount on composition in edited book collections and journals like College English and Teaching English in the Two-Year College.
