Emily-Rose Cockerham, High School Classroom Teacher for EnglishMaster Teacher

BA, Patrick Henry College

Emily-Rose Cockerham graduated from Patrick Henry College in 2008 with a BA in literature. During her four years of on-campus education she had the privilege of learning from some truly brilliant teachers, including Dr. Steven Hake and Dr. Gene Edward Veith. These teachers gave her the opportunity to learn to write in a number of different venues and styles including analysis, novellas, poetry, and radio drama. During her junior year, she had the opportunity to mentor young high school writers—a vocation she continued until her graduation.

Since graduation, Emily-Rose has continued both to self-educate and to help train high school students in her hometown. She has taught several courses in worldviews in literature, as well as serving as an editor for writings varying from young adult novels to doctoral theses.

As she prepares lessons for her students, Emily-Rose enjoys the chance to grapple with great authors and share her enthusiasm for literature with others. She looks forward to learning something new from her students.

Emily-Rose lives in Columbia, South Carolina, where she is seeking to serve and grow in God as she walks the daily adventure of life in faith.

Emily-Rose has been teaching with the Academy since 2013.
