Instructor Bio

Welcome new and prospective students! I'm Steven Mayers and I've been teaching in CCSF's English Department since 2005. I’ve taught the composition sequence (1A, 1A+1AS, 1B, and 1C); English 35A and B, Intro. to and Intermediate Fiction Writing; English 35L and M, Intro. to and Intermediate Literary Magazine; English 44B, Survey of World Literature from Early Modern to the Present; and English 26, an intensive grammar course. I'm a co-coordinator for CCSF's Puente Program, which has a cohort at the Mission campus. I teach the Puente Program's English 1A+1AS in the fall and English 1B in the spring, incorporating Latinx and multicultural authors, experiences, and issues into the reading and writing assignments. Puente's three-pronged approach uses writing instruction, counseling and mentoring to prepare underrepresented students to transfer to four-year universities. Read some of my students' oral history projects at Imagining Home: CCSF Oral History Project. I'm also a faculty advisor for Forum Magazine, our English Department's literary journal, which is produced by students in 35L and M.
