What do you find challenging about teaching at Pitt-Bradford?
The size and the resources here make it much easier to respond to the challenges associated with teaching. I have to impart a wide range of information to my students, all of whom are at different academic levels. The small class sizes make it much easier to tailor my lesson plans for students who grasp quickly and easily while making sure students who take longer to pick up the material don’t fall behind. Also, the technology available here makes it easier for all students to learn the material.
