Associate Professor of English and Director of the Writing Center
Sarah Spring is an Associate Professor of English in the College at Southwestern, where she will be teaching English I, II, III, and IV among other courses. She received her Ph.D. in English, with a focus on discourse studies, from Texas A&M University; her dissertation examined the role of technology in the writing process of composition students. In addition to her teaching, Dr. Spring is serving as the Director of Southwestern’s Writing Center. Prior to coming to Southwestern, she taught courses in first-year and advanced composition, technical writing, and new media at Winthrop University and Texas A&M University. Her four years at Winthrop were also spent developing the writing track for the English major. Dr. Spring has published in Enculturation and the Sweetland Digital Rhetoric Collaborative. Her current research includes two projects that seek to better understand the relationship between writer and text: a qualitative study of how undergraduate students see themselves as writers and an assessment of student reactions to the migration of a face-to-face course into a hybrid model. She is a regular presenter at both the Conference on College Composition and Communication and the Computers and Writing conference. Outside of the classroom, she is an avid sports fan and enjoys her work with women’s ministries.
