Choosing my favorite faculty member is a really difficult question, only because so many of them have--
That passion and charisma, but also just this really great pedagogy, which is just a fancy way of saying they're good at teaching. So a couple of teachers that really pop to mind are Professor Carpenter--
Professor Jay Gendron.
Professor Gharakhanian .
Professor Isabelle Gunning.
Part of why I love and respect them so much is the fact that I am their TA, so I've been able to see not only how they work in the classroom, but I actually have the opportunity to see how they prepare outside of the classroom and the dedication to their students.
They have a way of breaking down the information that makes it easy to understand and to apply.
Just the detailed feedback they gave me on my advocacy skills, and just-- they really-- they ultimately changed my life.
To have those type of faculty members that you can go to and really connect with on a myriad of levels is really special.
