|CSC Awards Faculty, Adjunct Faculty of the Year
|Lisa Mohr, Carl Sandburg College art instructor, and Sue Scott, CSC adjunct math instructor, have been named the 2009 Carl Sandburg College Faculty and Adjunct Faculty Member of Year, respectively.
Mohr and Scott were chosen by a selection committee based on nominations from CSC students and faculty and will be honored at the spring 2009 commencement ceremony. By being selected as the CSC Faculty Member of the Year, Mohr will automatically be submitted as CSC's nominee for the Illinois Community College Trustees Association's Outstanding Faculty Member Award.
Mohr started at CSC as an adjunct art instructor in 2001 and became a full-time instructor in 2005.
"I've been nominated a couple of times before and I have always been pleased with the whole idea that someone would go to the trouble of nominating me," Mohr said. "I'm really surprised and really happy. The students are very much a part of my life. I get to see their personas build right in front of me. I like the variety of students here at CSC. They have real lives, real problems, and needs that you have to sometimes scramble to meet. It keeps you focused on them. I think you can grow more as an instructor in an environment like that."
Scott has been an adjunct math instructor at CSC since 1986.
"My favorite part of teaching is seeing people do well in math because I see a lot of people that are terrified of math," Mohr said. "This award makes me happy because I know I am doing something good. There is always that doubt of not knowing whether you are getting through to students and I must have helped somebody since they wrote about their experience with me."
