LeAnne Laux-Bachand, M.A.
I teach 100 and 200-level writing, research, and creative nonfiction courses in the Core and Writing Studies, and prior to this I taught English 101 as a graduate student instructor at Western Washington University. I am interested in working with diverse student populations, and my teaching and research interests include writing about writing, concurrent transfer, and translingualism. As Coordinator of First-Year Writing (FYW) from 2020-23, I worked with Writing Studies faculty and other faculty and staff to update our student learning objectives and website, revise the process by which students choose a FYW course, hold our first-ever FYW awards, and do other work that supported inclusive environments for first-year students.
My background includes conference presentations at the Conference on College Composition and Communication, the Praxis conference at UW Seattle, the Council of Writing Program Administrators, and several readings at Northwest venues, including the Richard Hugo House in Seattle and Village Books in Bellingham.
- Writing for College and Work: A Study of Concurrent Transfer. This 2015-18 project looked at first-year writing students who work and asked what connections, if any, they made between the work in their writing courses and the composing and other skills they used at their jobs.
