"The Community College Teaching Fellowship completely changed the way I think about accessibility and pedagogy, for which I’ll always be deeply thankful. I was surprised just how different it was to be in charge of my own course, even after multiple semesters as an AI, but the mentorship I received at Camden County College was unparalleled and I’m extremely proud of the work my incredible students produced. This experience will genuinely inform my teaching for the rest of my career, and I’m grateful they welcomed me as their professor."

“Teaching at RCSJ was better than I could ever have imagined it would be. My students were thoughtful, curious, and hard-working. They were excited to learn, even in the midst of a global pandemic, and it was such a joy to teach them and see the way they took in new ideas. Working under a mentor at the college and designing every aspect of the course, from the textbook to the final assignment, gave me pedagogical insights I would never have had just from working as an AI. I can honestly say it completely changed how I think about my role as an educator.”
