“After a wonderful 21-year career at Southwest Virginia Community College, I moved to Norway. I continue to teach courses each term for the college online, such as the Barter Theatre Class, British Literature, Children’s Literature, and a Film course. In Norway, I teach at a private high school (psychology and English). I take cooking classes and study Norwegian in my spare time, and watch horror films for ‘fun.’ I visit my much-loved Virginia every year!” ~Dr. Shari Stacy
Most structured content will be offered through the Canvas learning platform and available any time convenient to participants.
