Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership
Dr. Kendra Gaines began her teaching career in 1969. Discovering that she loved teaching and had an aptitude for it, she continued her education, receiving a PhD in English from Northwestern University in Chicago. From there she taught at University of Arizona in Tucson, becoming a subject matter expert in the field of writing. She worked with both undergraduate and graduate students, both domestic and international, over almost three decades. She therefore feels comfortable in Walden's diverse atmosphere, guiding students through their writing endeavors.
