Stephanie E Denney

English Department

B.A., University of California, Berkeley (1990); M.A., Ph.D., University of Wisconsin, Madison (1991, 1999).

Professor Denney has been a member of the CCSF faculty since 1997.

She is dedicated to broadening educational opportunities for those traditionally excluded from higher education. As a teacher, she is tough and holds her students to a high standard, but she is also readily available to help her students to learn and succeed.

For nine years, Dr. Denney served as the Basic Skills Coordinator for the English Department and was and remains heavily involved in research and innovative curriculum. She runs or serves on many of the committees which develop innovative curriculum such as that for English 91 and the accelerated/intensive English 9293 and 96/1A. She has frequently served on her department's Curriculum Committee and various level committees. Previously, she was the English Department Assessment Coordinator and level coordinator for English 93, and she continues to remain heavily involved in assessment in her department.

Dr. Denney has also served on the campus-wide Basic Skills Committee and on the Basic Skills Initiative. Currently, she is involved with two Academic Senate committees: she chairs the Professional Development Activities Committee and serves as a member on the Educational Policies committee. She also serves on the Faculty Association Planning Committee.

In 2005, Dr. Denney attended the month-long Kellogg Institute for Developmental Educators in Boone, North Carolina. She is a member of the National Association of Developmental Educators and has given presentations at several national conventions.

She also is remotely involved in the Nancy W. Denney Scholarship for Single Parents Committee at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, which provides scholarships and a residence for single parents attending that school.

Dr. Denney also was a member of the team that won the BSI 2009 grant, organized a Summer Leadership Institute at San Francisco State, and created the California Community Colleges Success Network (3CSN), which provides professional development to community colleges throughout the California.

Dr. Denney's hobby is lifelong learning. She reads just about everything she can get her hands on, from psychology, history, political science, and economics, to classical and contemporary literature, graphic novels, and science fiction. Not surprisingly, she is addicted to podcasts, in particular This American Life, Radiolab, Planet Money, Freakonomics Radio, 99% Invisible,and various history and science podcasts. She frequently watches TED Talks and RSA videos.

Finally, travel, by car or plane, national or international, is her passion. When she has time and money, she loves to experience different cultures firsthand.

B.A., English, University of California, Berkeley;
Candidate for Ph.D., English, University of California, Berkeley.

I have been teaching at CCSF since 1996.

Stories instruct us, entertain us, tease us, lead us. Here is one of mine.

Out in the ocean, I'll scuba dive, but I prefer free diving, working with mask, snorkel, and fins to explore the underwater world. I dive as deeply as I can, but I also hug the shore, especially rocky shores. For example, down Monterey way, swimming amidst the offshore rocks, I seek out surge-channels, feeling and resisting the force of the water, wondering how it must be for an otter or fish to live in the midst of this liquid medium. When my resistance fails, when my kicking doesn't matter, and I'm shoved deep into the crevices and crannies of the rocks, I'm not unhappy; rough handling is part of the deal, and the wetsuit's padding helps against the sharp edges of barnacles and mussels, the spines of urchins. Sometimes, my resistance works and I hover, balanced amidst the vortex. Of course, then another wave breaks, and another. Thrown about or poised, I don't ignore my surroundings. I'll mimic the fish or the limpet, as needed, or with the scant grace at my command, embrace in succession the fluidity of the kelp, the stolidity of the mussels with their byssal thread anchors, and the reflexive exuberance of the otters and seals, true marine mammals.

Underwater tidepooling: I move against and through the surge funneled by the wall-like rocks, kicking firmly and angling downward beneath the fullness of the sea's flexing to avoid being shoved and thrown like mere flotsam. I dive below that surface, but the shallowness here keeps me in the surge, which I like, which is why I'm playing in among these rocks rather than out in deeper water. Submerging here intensifies that sense of being held in the water's palm, that sense of being otterlike, for a moment, being merman instead of mere Matt.

I recall channel-surging one rather mild day a few summers back, neither hot nor cold, cloudy but clearing; I prefer the rougher, more vigorous days, frankly, but I do see that one day as an almost perfect emblem. I was swimming along the shore near Coral Cove in Pacific Grove with camera, disposable, and curiosity, indispensable, happy as a clam, but far more mobile. What did Dictionary Johnson say? "Curiosity is one of the permanent and certain characteristics of a vigorous mind."

That quotation captures one thought worth living by, and here's another, by Nancy Packer: "There's life on the page. You read it, and it's not your experience, but it expands your experience."

I haven't written directly about teaching, but you may have learned something about what I bring to the classroom.
--Matt Duckworth

P.S.: You can find the original version of the words above at my blog under the title "Channel-Surging." I invite you to check it out for yourself.

My philosophy is to treat the formal educational moment, the class, as an in-focus snapshot of a longer movie—and what is important to me is that students feel a connection to me that carries them along as long as they need my support.


It is a pity that School, and Schooling, has been seen as a competitive enterprise. That ruins the fun, doesn't it? . Instead, I strive to create an environment, collaboratively with students, where everyone feels the cooperative spirit, and each of our individual triumphs is a mark, at least in part, of our ability to rejoice in one another's progress and evolution as engaged human beings.

In 1A and 96 English classes, I often use texts having to do with the economy, mass incarceration, problem solving, and media literacy.

I also try to incorporate poetry, short novels, and stories, whenever possible.

I have been a member of the CCSF English Department since 2001.

I believe students learn best when the classroom community feels safe and caring, and when the curriculum is relevant and challenging. I offer students different strategies for learning and studying and encourage them to reflect on their own best practices. I am interested in helping students appreciate reading for pleasure as well as for information.

I am the Reading Coordinator and have been a member of the English Curriculum Committee as well as the Hiring Committee. I have also served on the CCSF Catalog Committee and Basic Skills Committee.

I am trained in Reading Apprenticeship and am a member of the Northern California College Reading Association (NCCRA.)

I enjoy singing in a chorus, reading, and gardening. I live in El Cerrito with my husband and son.

Ms. Crossin is also a UC Application Coach at Chabot College.

In her leisure time, she enjoys reading, walking on the beach and cooking.

Edissa Nicolas

English Department

Since summer 2007, Professor Nicolas taught both Basic Skills and General English courses at Berkeley City College and CCSF. You can also find her working as a one-on-one tutor at the CCSF Writing Lab. In addition, she volunteers as a Brown University admissions interviewer and help coordinate the community food-pantry at my church.

In Professor Nicolas' own words:

It was a dream of mine to return to CCSF as faculty since my undergraduate days serving on the CCSF Associated Student Council (I was vice president of communication). At that time, I worked to improve student services and to increase transfer rates from City to UC, State, and beyond. Those are still very important goals for me.

I was born in the Dominican Republic and grew up in New York City. Though I dropped out of high school at seventeen, I later attended CCSF and then Brown University, finishing with a Bachelor’s degree in Education. My MFA in Creative Writing (Fiction) is from Mills College. To me writing is life—a way to share our intellects and creativity with others.

I enjoy teaching and working with people of all ages and needs, including children, elderly people, and recent immigrants. My passion for teaching, writing, traveling, and languages has taken me to South Korea and Germany as an English as a Foreign Language instructor. My long-term goals are to continue teaching and to write professionally.

Professor Nicolas is currently working on a book-length work of fiction (Man of Ice: The Matthew Henson Story), several short stories, a screenplay, and a non-fiction guide to academia for returning adults.

* Show up fully. There are no shortcuts.
* Respectfully speak your 100% truth, 100% of the time. Be willing to hear yes, no, or resistance--and be willing to negotiate a win-win.
* Integrity is...when your words and actions match, and they are in alignment with your values.
* I believe in teaching from a model of empowerment. I give all that I can to my classes, and ask that students do the same. We will both flounder and make mistakes. Instead of this being a downfall, it's an asset--when we are both conscious enough to decide to move forward from there. It is my hope that we are both empowered to move forward.
* Notice. Choose. Act. BE THE CHANGE.
