Maryam Barrie attended school at WCC in the early 1980's, and was able to “apprentice” with Full time English Instructors (at the time) Hal Weidner, Lorene Erickson and Dan Minock. She began working as a tutor in the Writing Center in 1982. In 1985, she earned a B.A. from the University of Michigan and began teaching here part-time. In 2002, she became full-time and continues to feel like working at WCC is the best of all possible worlds.
