Assistant Teaching Professor

Grace Rexroth is an Assistant Teaching Professor with the LA Program who is passionate about active learning practices and equitable teaching methods. She earned her Ph.D. in English Literature from CU Boulder, where she was a CHA Reynolds fellow specializing in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British literature and culture, women’s literature, and memory studies. Her interests in memory processes and the reading mind inspired further interest in pedagogical theory (how we teach and learn). Her work has appeared in Nineteenth-Century Literature, Studies in Romanticism, and English Language Notes. In 2023 she was awarded a Huntington Exchange fellowship to conduct research at the John Rylands Library towards the completion of her first book project, Imprinted Memories.

Grace has over a decade of teaching experience and has crafted unique courses at both the upper and lower division level for the English department and the Women and Gender Studies department at CU. In 2017, she won a GPTI teaching award for her implementation of active learning methods in the classroom. She is also passionate about serving underrepresented and first-generation college students and has worked as a mentor and tutor for the Miramontes Arts and Sciences Program. In 2020, she served as a Digital Pedagogy Fellow, designing asynchronous classes for Continuing Education while helping to build a teaching repository website for online English teachers. Since 2021, Grace has been working with the LA Program, teaching pedagogical theory to incoming and returning learning assistants and empowering them to build more equitable and dynamic learning communities.
