My name is Rochelle Harden. My students call me Ms.Harden or Prof. Harden. I am an English professor at Parkland College. I have taught at Parkland for 13 years. I teach primarily developmental composition classes like ENG 098 and ENG 099. These are the classes some students take before taking ENG 101. I also occasionally teach the African American Literature class.
I love teaching. I love my students and my colleagues. However, the budget impasse in the state of Illinois is negatively impacting the good work that goes on at Parkland College. I am trying to do everything I can to help the college, my colleagues, and my students.
I was elected as a Parkland College Board of Trustee, on Tuesday, April 4th. My immediate focus is on getting a state budget, turning around the decline in enrollment, and improving communication at Parkland and with the community.
