In summer 2016, Dr. Amy Rottmann was named Assistant Professor of Education for Lenoir-Rhyne's Center for Graduate Studies of Asheville. In this capacity, she provides instruction and recruitment for the University's fully online Master's in the Art of Teaching program. Dr. Rottmann comes to LR from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, where she most recently served as director of student engagement and recruitment at the Watson College of Education. She also formerly served UNC Wilmington as director of the Teaching Fellows Program. In addition, Dr. Rottmann has taught at Mount Olive University and Coastal Carolina University, and has experience as a high school English teacher. Her research focuses on literacy at the secondary level as well as social justice, co-teaching, and self-efficacy. Along with teaching and research, Dr. Rottmann is active in community engagement that centers on hunger, homelessness, and literacy.

Dr. Rottmann brings a wealth of professional acumen to LR Asheville, as she has earned a number of credentials related to the fields of education and leadership, all from UNC Wilmington. They include:

An Ed.D. in educational leadership: Curriculum, Instruction, and Supervision

A master's certificate in conflict, management, and resolution

  • A master's degree in education (M.Ed.), secondary education with English emphasis
  • A bachelor of arts, English with secondary teacher certification

Dr. Rottmann is actively engaged in scholarship. An article that she co-authored with Martin Wasserberg titled "Urban High School Students' Perspectives on Test Centered Curriculum" was recently published in the academic journal American Secondary Education. In addition, in November she will be hosting two presentation sessions ("Co-Teaching in Higher Education" and "From Seed to Story") at the annual convention of the National Council of Teachers of English in Atlanta, Ga.
