« Her dedication to her craft, her sensitivity towards her students, her ability to connect, relate and effectively get through to the various age groups (pre teens during two summer semesters and teenaged as well as adult students throughout the Fall & Spring semesters) are just a few standout characteristics of why "Ms.G" is a trustworthy as well as a quite effective Adjunct Professor. She makes herself available as much as she can in a professional capacity & takes her office hours very seriously as so if any of her current students need a helping ear to listen to or clarity on their current curriculum. Her dedication can also be reflected by her almost flawless attendance and her willingness to travel county to county as well as out of the state lines covering different community colleges with spirit and a fresh new energy consistently to do her job. She uses a high level of discretion in order to protect her student body and is constantly surprised how the word of mouth via her students seems to draw more students eager to learn into her classrooms. She is often also surprised by being recognized as well as running into her previous students throughout the community who are often ecstatic to see one of their favorite teachers. She effectively uses her life experiences in the form of love for the arts and people to also relate and effectively communicate to her student body. She comes from a stock of educators and teachers including both of her parents and is always looking for pointers (even over the dinner table) in order to strengthen her teaching skills and ability even more so from her once and currently retired school Nurse R.N. & Instructor Mom who also has her Masters in Education. Her display of these characteristics continually day after day support why I know Robin/"Ms.G" is quite the trustworthy teacher. Please take all of these factors into consideration towards considering just how trustworthy she is. »
