FSJ writer Holly Keehn conducted an interview with professor Stephanie Andersen to learn more about her personal and professional life as a part ongoing series Meet Your RACC Teachers.
Stephanie Andersen has been a writing instructor here at RACC for the past eleven years. She teaches English Composition and Creative Writing. Before she came to RACC, she worked at Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington, North Carolina and taught English at a high school in South Carolina. When asked what her favorite job was so far, she replied that her favorite was being a barista in a coffee shop in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Outside of RACC, Stephanie has many projects she is working on. She participates in “Reading for One Hundred,” which is a citywide initiative for Reading to go 100% clean electricity by 2035. She is also working on her personal essay collection. During her free time, Stephanie also enjoys teaching Zumba on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-5 p.m. on RACC’s campus.

Stephanie’s family life revolves around her husband of ten years, David Glover, and her three stepchildren and two biological children. Jimmy, the cockatiel, keeps Stephanie’s online workshop sessions interesting by whistling pretty songs and saying funny phrases. Along with Jimmy, Stephanie also has two dogs, Daisy the Jack Russell, and Lexi the Schnoodle.
