More about Jeff Birdsong

I completed my Ph.D. degree in 2008 at UNC Chapel Hill, and had been looking at a number of liberal arts colleges to teach Spanish.  I was struck by the beauty of the St. Andrews campus.  Later, after meeting the faculty, I was immediately impressed by the group attitude of the St. Andrew’s faculty and their unselfish commitment to the education of their students.

If possible, I would teach a course that shows how poetic writings in both North and South America reflect an evolving attitude toward our relationship with the land around us.  We would study how these attitudes have affected everyday decisions that we make in life for the better and for the worse.  I would also enjoy a perspectives course that studies literature from different perspectives: race, gender, religion, tradition and modernity.

I love sports, particularly tennis and cycling, and I enjoy starting and participating in community projects.

If I wasn't a college professor.... I was a CPA for twelve years and still continue financial and tax consulting on a small scale.  If I weren’t a professor, I would probably be reviewing the audited balance sheet for a financial institution in North Georgia.
