I am a Senior Spanish Education major and a History Education minor. I have been working in the CWE for two years and this is my first semester as a Writing Fellow. I will be graduating in December 2016. After graduation, I would like to teach abroad before coming back to the U.S. to be a high school Spanish teacher. I studied abroad in Spain for five months, and this summer I will be a part of the International Fellows Program that will be doing undergraduate research in Peru. My interests include dancing, going to brunch/coffee, traveling, watching sports (SKOL VIKINGS), and spending time with friends and family.

I love getting to work as a Writing Assistant and a Writing Fellow because I get to spend time guiding individual students with their writing. Working with students is a collaborative process because both the writer and myself find ways to improve together. I believe that every writer has great ideas and the ability to produce excellent writing. Therefore, I push students to expand on their work and create something to the best of their ability.

Hey all! My name is Grace Luebben, but you can call me Gracie. I'm a senior English Education major and I will be student teaching abroad next fall. My favorite thing to do is DANCE, whether it be modern, jazz, or ballet. I've been on BMB Dance Line for three years and this past semester I performed in The Dance Exchange. I also enjoy biking, hanging out with friends, and reading (big surprise!).

I've been a Writing Assistant at the CWE for three years. I have also been an Academic Apprentice in both Introduction to Texts and Introduction to Literature. I enjoy helping students organize their thoughts and their papers in a way that makes them shine. Best of all, I love the welcoming atmosphere at the CWE, and I hope you do, too!

I am in my third year at UWEC, majoring in Comprehensive English Education. I've worked in the CWE for over a year now. Some of my hobbies include reading, crafting, Pinteresting, and Netflix. I'm a workaholic, so I'm great at making drinks at Caribou and ice cream cones at Cup and Cone!

As a Writing Assistant and Fellow, I like to think of myself as the backboard of the hoop in basketball. I'm there for students to ask questions, to discuss ideas, and, most of all, to improve as writers. You are the the one making choices about how you want to address and connect with your reader. I'm just the person who can help you along the way to achieve your goals!
