June Beck, MA

Adjunct Faculty

June Beck, MA, graduated from Antioch University Santa Barbara in 1996 and earned her graduate degree in English at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. She teaches a variety of English courses at Cuesta College and at Antioch, including basic skills, critical thinking, academic writing and creative writing. After many years, she completed a novel, which has not hit the market yet. June has published recently in Ascent Aspirations and The Women’s Press, and works occasionally for online suppliers of web content. June lives on the Central Coast with her husband Peter, their dog Dash, and their cat Kitty. They enjoy stand-up paddleboarding, fine dining, concerts, movies, books, NPR, and PBS Newshour. In an effort to be open and curious about learning new things, June has recently taken up the washboard.

“June has really taken the time to work with me especially since I have a hard time with papers. She recommended the writing lab, which is a great thing to have on campus!”
