If you or someone you know has a success story, and they were in my classroom at some point in the past, please let me know so I can add them to this list of successes. It's time to start a log of student success. I've been teaching at American River College since 2002. Since then, my methods for teaching have evolved. When I try new techniques in the classroom, or introduce new projects, I try to predict the long term impact it may have. That said, after looking at student success over the last ten years, I can confidently state that offering course content that has a holistic exhibition of 3D production (film type) in each course has a very positive result on the student in the long term. As the professor at a 2-year college, freshman and sophomore level, I don't get to see the results of my hard work. Most students move on in under 2-years. They transfer, they get work, or they move on to something else. Most of the time I don't hear from these students. Some of them don't want to admit they started at a community college. I understand why someone wouldn't want to admit that they had started at a CC. As the student's career develops, and they get better and better, they should have no lack of self-confidence to admit where they started. Some are very proud of their first 2-years, or first 2 semesters. I'm always happy to hear from them. Most important, I get a chance to brag about their success and that it started with me. 🙂 Many of the successes listed below are due to the great networks that the 4-year university they chose had to offer them. However, I'm confident the "bug" or "spark" they needed to go for big projects and notable work was inspired in my classroom.
