NMC Graduate Returns as Instructor (January 14, 2010)

The Northern Marianas College recently hired one of its alumni to serve as an instructor at the institution’s School of Education.

Amanda Angel, a graduate of NMC, began NMC’s registration week by advising students at the School of Education offices in Building T. Starting Tuesday, she will be teaching a number of courses, such as Introduction to Computers for Teachers, Multicultural Foundations, and several other courses focused on practicing teaching methods.

Angel graduated magna cum laude with her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from NMC in 2006 and has been a 5th grade teacher at William S. Reyes Elementary School since then. She then received her master’s in International Teaching from Framingham State College in 2008. While still a student at NMC, Angel was actively involved in tutoring fellow students in math and English.

“I am honored to have been selected for this position,” said Angel, who maintains a serious commitment to ensuring the progress and success of her students. “I look forward to working closely with my colleagues and my students to develop as fruitful a semester as possible.”

While a teacher in the Public School System, Angel attended many professional development workshops geared towards effective classroom management. Some of the topics covered included ESL teaching strategies, behavior modification and planning, diverse classroom management strategies, and curriculum mapping.

“We are pleased to welcome Amanda to the NMC family,” said NMC Interim President Lorraine Cabrera. “We are also excited to have a graduate return and share her expertise with current students.”

The School of Education currently offers a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. The College is moving forward with a proposal to also offer a program in early childhood and special education. These proposals will need to be approved by the accrediting commissions.

Registration for the Spring 2010 semester is still ongoing. For more information, visit
