Bonnie Laughlin Schultz
Next year Bonnie Laughlin Schultz will hold a Future Faculty Teaching Fellowship (FFTF) at Indiana University Southeast.
FFTFs place advanced graduate students at other branches of Indiana University. Students teach four classes, are mentored by tenured faculty, and are immersed in a professional work setting. In the fall Bonnie will teach the first half of the U.S. history survey and an upper-class elective on the early national period. In the spring she will likely repeat the U.S. survey and teach a survey of twentieth century world history.
Asked about this opportunity, Bonnie replied that she is excited to have the chance to teach in a small department (there are only five full-time historians at IUS) and to be mentored by them throughout the year. She is also grateful for the chance to build a CV of diverse teaching experiences. She adds that "from what I hear from former participants in the program, having the FFTF experience has proven invaluable in professional development in the classroom and (perhaps more pragmatically) on the job market."
Her advisor is Wendy Gamber and she earned previously a B.A. at Knox College and an M.A. at the University of Missouri, St. Louis.
