RANGER RECOVERY: Updated mask / face covering requirements

Kaitlyn Bolyard


  • First-Year Writing
  • Composition
  • Rhetoric & Discourse
I teach first-year writing courses at both the University of Wisconsin-Parkside in Kenosha, WI, and DePaul University in Chicago, IL. I love spreading my appreciation of writing, creativity, and critical thinking to my students.

Teaching Interests

I really enjoy teaching composition practices to incoming freshmen, preparing them for the road ahead and the types of essays they will write for college. I also encourage an appreciation of diverse language practices, focusing on the ways in which language is an extension of student identity.

Research Interests

I am most interested in rhetorical analyses of contemporary compositions, as well as how language variety and linguistic diversity affects the ways in which we communicate.

Creatively, I am drawn to both the study and creation of poetry and spoken word performance.
