#NISODProfiles – Emmanuel Luke
“My best piece of advice for other educators is to encourage and motivate students about your field, and to work with them to ensure that they understand the keys to securing and maintaining employment in the profession you are preparing them for.“
How long have you been a college educator?
I have been teaching for eight years.
What is your favorite part about being a community or technical college educator?
I get to impact lives and create lasting memories for both me and my students each day.
What is your best piece of advice for new or existing colleagues at community or technical colleges in your field?
Encourage and motivate students about the field, and work with them to ensure that they understand the keys to securing and maintaining employment in the profession you are preparing them for.
How do you connect with your students?
I connect with my students by encouraging classroom discussions. This allows them to voice their opinions and get some dedicated attention from me and their peers during classroom time.
If you could have dinner with anyone, who would it be and why?
I would choose Nelson Mandela, to teach me wisdom.
Every month, NISOD profiles faculty and staff from our member colleges who are doing extraordinary work on their campuses. #NISODProfiles offer a direct connection to your colleagues from across the world who exemplify NISOD’s mission of improving teaching, learning, and leadership.
