John Keller

Assistant Professor



John M. Keller has worked in the English Department at Kingsborough since 2003.

A veteran of Kingsborough’s dynamic learning communities, and a member of the ACE ESL founding group, he is happy to have had the pleasure to work closely with colleagues from a number of departments. His work with Kingsborough’s diverse student body is of his greatest joys.
