Enjoyed and appreciated by students in both his lower-level General Education courses and English specialty courses alike, Jeffrey K. Gibson expects to receive his doctorate from the University in May. The University of Central Florida graduate has taught English classes at the University since 2000 and specializes in the fields of Shakespeare, writing, and contemporary American life and literature. He has received extremely high course evaluations over the last four semesters and has shown to be an outstanding instructor at each of the five class levels he has taught.

“Mr. Gibson is, in my view, our most accomplished graduate student teacher, perhaps indeed, among the most committed and acclaimed of our undergraduate instructors generally,” wrote Mike Hill, associate professor and associate chair of the English department. “While it will be heartening to see Jeffrey Gibson move on from UAlbany English to a tenure-track job in the future, as I have no doubt he will, the department will need to work hard in recruiting an incoming cohort of graduate students who will develop into teachers of his high caliber, popularity, and achievement.”
