Dr. Virginia Crank
English Department
University of Wisconsin - La Crosse

I teach composition and literature in the English department of the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse.  Before coming to UW-L in the fall of 2001, I taught composition and literature at Rock Valley College in Rockford, IL,  Missouri Western State College in St. Joseph, MO, and Peru State College in Peru, NE after completing my Ph.D. in English at Southern Illinois University. As a teacher, I enjoy introducing students to the skills they will need in order to be successful and confident writers, readers, critical thinkers, and educated citizens;  I always hope to instill, if not a love of language, an awareness of the power of language, believing that language is the means by which we make sense of our worlds and get what we want. Language power is for everyone!!
