I was hired in the Fall of 2019 to teach history and to help strengthen Latin American Studies at Nassau Community College. Among the courses I teach are Colonial Latin American History, History of Mexico and Central America, and Western Civilization. I am also Coordinator of the Latin American Studies Project and Chair of the International Education Committee of the Academic Senate. My fondest memory of my time at the College so far is the day I was hired.
My department gave me the opportunity to fulfill my dreams as a Latin American historian and to contribute to our students' success by working towards becoming a Hispanic Serving Institution. I am also honored to be the faculty advisor to the Student Organization of Latinos(as). The multicultural nature of our student body makes us an ideal place to foster respect and grants us the opportunity to work towards the fulfillment of all our students' potential. This environment makes teaching, advocating, and engaging, particularly our minority students, our highest priority.
I am a marketing major and will graduate in 2025. After a rough start at a large four-year university, I chose to attend Nassau Community College. It has a nice campus, a great community, and besides — my mom went here! My best experience so far has been my in-class presentations.

I transferred to NCC to pursue a degree in Nursing. After some sudden life-changing events I needed to be back home with my family. Nassau was the best educational opportunity for me, especially considering my chosen career path. One of my favorite experiences at the College so far has been forming a sense of community with my peers.

My major is Biology and I am in my second year at NCC. I originally came to Nassau Community College because of the smaller class sizes and proximity to my home but the terrific faculty and flexible class schedules are great as well. As a science major, I would have to say one of my favorite experiences at Nassau has been the hands-on work that we do in the labs during biology classes.
