Gordon Leighton, Ph.D


I have taught all levels of English for over twenty years here at Bellevue College.  I love working with my students and colleagues in this rich environment where we always have so many interesting things going on, and  I especially enjoy watching my Developmental English students move up into the college levels and go on to get their degrees and certificates.

When I teach literature, I usually do courses in the British sequence or in different topics of World Literature.  I also do the introductory 100-level courses.
