Teaching, learning, and technology are fundamental parts of society – in and out of the classroom. Teaching involves one’s own learning of content, researching pedagogical practices, and applying and integrating that knowledge with technology to foster an environment of learning. Learning is something that is never finished or completed, there’s always room for more growth.
Hi there! My name is Raeanna Hobson-Balderrama, and my love for reading and literature has taken me down the pedagogical path and put me in the position of an instructor, teaching professional and technical communication,

I am currently in my second year of teaching as a graduate assistant. This year, I'm instructing one course of English 2210, Professional and Technical Communication.
Additionally, I tutor students asynchronously with the Writing Center for 3 per a week.
