Amy C. Murphy received her Ph.D. in English from the University of Arizona. Since receiving her doctorate, she has held appointments in various institutions at both the post secondary and secondary levels. She has been a professor at both urban and rural college campuses, and has taught literature and composition to a diverse student body, from Florida to Arizona, Oklahoma and Texas, and now in Vermont. While she has specialized in the teaching of British literature, she has also taught writing and composition for over 20 years and has an expertise and interest in helping students improve their writing skills. She enjoys serving students and building their confidence as writers and thinkers as they prepare themselves for their chosen career paths.
At Green Mountain College, she enjoys having the opportunity to teach in the ELA core and help students develop their writing skills. In addition, as the Davis Grant Writing Director, she feels fortunate to share her knowledge of the teaching of composition with both students and faculty. Finally, teaching British literature enables her to share her passion for the history and cultures connected to the English speaking world.
