It has been nearly 25 years since I entered my first class as a High School English teacher in the wonderful little town of Prairie Home, Missouri. I loved teaching high school and thought I might do this for my entire career. However, plans change, life happens, and some opportunities have to be taken. My name is Boyce D. Durr. I have both a B.A. in English and an M.A.E. in English education from Truman State University in Missouri and a Ph.D. in Teaching and Learning from New York University. Since teaching high school, I have worked at NYU, Queens College, Virginia Polytechnic University, Kaplan University, and Radford University before transitioning back to the Midwest, where I now work as a writer and marketing editor at Fort Hays State University. I spent much of my career helping students develop their writing. Now I look forward to putting these skills to work at FHSU, sharing some of the fantastic stories found here at Tiger Nation.
