Teaching Experience

Chuck Hatcher's interest in teaching started in high school. As an undergraduate at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, the flexible educational model allowed him to spend one quarter exploring the world of the high school English teacher. After receiving his BA in Literature and spending several years in a dead end job, he attended Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington where he earned certification as a high school English teacher. A year or so as a substitute teacher convinced him that teaching high school was not the best fit so he accepted a position at Centralia College as a Media Specialist. This position allowed him the opportunity to teach continuing education classes in photography. After earning his MFA in directing, Chuck took on the job of resident sound designer for Tacoma Actors Guild which lead to a position with Cornell University. There he began teaching sound technology and design courses. Twelve years later, Chuck found himself at the College-Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati as an Assistant Professor of Theater Design and Production. He advanced to the rank of Full Professor in the fall of 2012 and resigned the position in the spring of 2013 to join his wife, Tammy Honesty, scenic designer/teacher at Saint Mary’s University in Winona, MN. While in Winona, he designed sound and taught as an adjunct at Saint Mary's and at Viterbo University in nearby La Crosse, Wisconsin. He has also been an adjunct at Western Illinois University in Macomb, Illinois and is currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor teaching online for Webster University, Saint Louis, MO. Although no longer a full-time teacher, his interest in and passion for teaching remains strong.
