TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Adam Jernigan has been teaching English in high schools and universities for 25 years. After earning a B.A. from Stanford University and a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, he taught English courses at one of the most prestigious universities in the U.S. But because his real passion is for working with adolescents, he has devoted the last 15 years to teaching at top-ranked high schools. He has taught English courses in grades 9-12 and especially enjoys designing curricula for honors courses, specialized electives, and Advanced Placement courses such as AP Literature.
