Lise-Pauline Milton Barnett, EdD
Drexel University School of Education Alumni Board
I earned a B.A. in English and Journalism (Radio, Television, and Film) from Spelman College in 1999. After spending several years working for a financial institution, I returned to school and earned a Master of Arts in Teaching (English, Speech, radio, and television) from Wayne State University in 2004. During this time, I taught middle school Language Arts, worked as a sports reporter for a local news channel, and started my own event planning company. Upon Graduation, I received a job working as a high school English teacher. After moving to York, PA with my family, I started as an adjunct professor at Harrisburg Area Community College in 2005 at their York Campus and at York College. In 2008, I became a tenure-track professor for the Virtual Campus of Harrisburg Area Community College teaching English Composition, Business and Technical Writing and various Literature courses. I received my doctorate from Drexel University in Educational Leadership and Management in Higher Education in 2015. I have held various positions at Harrisburg Area Community College during my tenure such as Director of Operations for Virtual Learning and Department Chair of English. I moved back to Michigan, and I am currently an Assistant Professor of English at Harrisburg Area Community College’s Virtual Learning. I have been married to my college sweetheart for 15 years and have two wonderful children ages 13 and 11. I am looking forward to the next journey in my life.
