Ph.D., University of Massachusetts at Amherst; M.A., Boston College; B.A. Carroll College. Areas of research or interests include: Victorian Literature (especially big fat novels by writers like the Brontes, Dickens, and Eliot), The Family in Literature, Literary Theory and, especially, feminist theories. Dr. Satre also enjoys teaching Expository Writing because "it's so rewarding to work with students as they develop their writing muscle (through drafting and revising) and gain power to create pieces that are meaningful for themselves and their readers." She also find that working closely with motivated students and supportive, talented colleagues is very rewarding at Carroll."When I first came to Carroll as an undergraduate, I thought I'd maybe be here for a year, tops. Now, more than 30 years later, recalling this makes me laugh. I've come "back" to Carroll three separate times, in between other life experiences and stints at graduate school; this last time back, I've stayed for nearly 20 years. I can't fully explain Carroll's attraction, but I have found my life here, working with students and colleagues, seeking knowledge and understanding, enjoying this beautiful and humble spot."
