Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v35 n2 p213-222 Dec 2007
This article examines, in a variety of ways, the concept of identity and presents reports and views from regional representatives of the Two-Year College English Association on the issue of identity in the classroom. Reporting from TYCA-Northeast, Marsha Nourse echoes some dismay as she relates chance meetings with students. Elissa Caruth from TYCA-Pacific Coast/ECCTYC, and Louise Bown from TYCA-West, discuss the identity issues that arise in online teaching, and Eva Payne from TYCA-Pacific Northwest, relates the pressure felt by many successful teachers to join the ranks of administration. Thad Cockrill from TYCA-Southeast, examines the meaning of the word "professor" and asks how much is too much when it comes to revealing personal information to students. David Lydic from TYCA-Southwest, describes the sometimes frustrating preconceptions that people often have of English teachers, while Leslie Roberts from TYCA-Midwest, argues that the identity of a writing teacher is a more difficult persona than that of a literature instructor.
