Christine Sandoval, an Associate Professor of English, has been teaching at Riverside City College in California for sixteen years. She has taught creative writing and literary magazine production, various literature courses, and college level composition, but her true passion is developmental English. During her tenure at RCC, she has been actively involved in creating the learning communities program CAP (Community for Academic Progress), as well as a supplemental instructional leader program. Her most recent project, Completion Counts, involves working collaboratively with high school English teachers to better prepare students for college level reading and writing. Along with her co-writer Lawrence Barkley, she has written GRAMMAR AND USAGE, NATURALLY, a developmental English textbook that will be published by Cengage Learning in 2014.
