Christine Nicodemus graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a BA in English. From there she went to teach English as a Foreign Language in South Korea for two years, which encouraged her to go back to school and get an advanced degree. She has since taught in a variety of contexts including middle schools, high schools, and, most recently, she has returned to the university setting, teaching ENGL 1100 classes here at ECU. When she is not teaching, Christine can often be found watching any sport ESPN happens to be playing.
