“I wanted to let you know that I’m at Oxford getting a degree in English Literature right now. Thanks for being such a great teacher — wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you.”
~ Lael Hines, Oxford University

“I enjoyed English class for the first time as a high school junior with Dr. Stella. She taught me literature is more than just words on a page. I came to understand the importance of literary periods as they fit in with the development of the modern world and culture. Dr. Stella challenged me more than any other teacher before and in a way that inspired me to find a passion for literature. Anyone who has the opportunity to be taught by her is truly blessed and should take advantage of the many resources and expertise she offers.”
Connor Wulf, University of Notre Dame
