WHY DO YOU ENJOY TEACHING STUDENTS IN HILLYER?

Small classes, great colleagues, and an excellent network of student resources make Hillyer College a great place to teach and learn. Students know to seek out their professors outside of class, and I enjoy this personalized teaching. I especially enjoy learning from students, who often look at texts and issues from perspectives that are new to me.
