You may now call me Professor Press.

I’ll be teaching a few sections of English Composition at North Country Community College and Paul Smith’s in the Fall. To say that a few goosebumps sprung on my neck upon hearing “Professor Press” is putting it pretty mildly. This is the best birthday present a guy could have. 

Professor wear. Though I don’t think I could pop that collar without giggling.

Sometimes I’ve regretted the time I’ve given to teaching, but not teaching itself.

"I just finished my dissertation." “What was the topic?”  “It was about the prediction of community college retention rates.” “What interests you most about community college?”  “Well, a lot of things. But I really think that the community college system is critical to the functioning of our democracy. A democracy depends on the education of its citizenry. And we just don’t have the infrastructure to send everyone to a four year school. So if America’s democracy is going to succeed, it’s going to depend in large part on the health of our community colleges.”

Absolutely, which is why I’m really glad to be working at a Community College.
