What are your goals as a teacher at Kaskaskia College? My goal as a teacher is simply to do the best I can every day. When I look back at my own college experience, the professors I valued the most were the ones who showed genuine respect for their students and pushed them to excel. That is the kind of professor I want to be.
Up to this moment, what is your proudest teach moment? My proudest moment as a teacher?: When I see a student who lacked confidence, or else one who was really struggling with writing or reading, succeed. They succeed because they were determined to succeed. I love to watch those students walk across the stage at graduation. I know they have achieved something that will change them for the rest of their lives. That is my reward for teaching.
