Hello, I'm Professor Bean and I taught at Snow College as an adjunct during the fall of 2000 and winter of 2001. I returned to teach full time in the fall of 2005 after getting a Ph.D. in the wonderful state of Ohio. I love Sanpete County and the students who make Snow College their home for two years. As an English teacher, I strive to prepare students to succeed as writers in other classes. I also hope to inculcate a love of literature in those students who take my literature courses. In the fall I teach an Early American Literature course, and in the spring I teach a Science Fiction Literature course. I encourage students to stop by my office and spend some time bending my ear about the latest American or Sci-fi novel.
