I enjoy the positive feedback I receive from students, colleagues, and peers that my contributions positively impact the success of their education and the functioning of ECC. My role at ECC is to help fulfill its mission to ‘improve peoples’ lives through learning’. Fulfilling this mission involves helping students as well as colleagues and peers. Shared components such as teamwork, communication, and cooperation help fulfill this mission.
Highly recommended by several of his professors to continue his education and teach at the college level, Michael Segreto’s presentation and instructional abilities are better than most.
