Michelle Medeiros, English and literature faculty at Front Range Community College’s Westminster Campus, is the college’s faculty of the year.
She was honored at a meeting of the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education.
Teachers are learners themselves, and Medeiros is no exception. Medeiros, who has been at FRCC seven years, teaches composition, literature, and children’s literature courses. She also is an embedded instructor in English classes and a Phi Theta Kappa advisor. Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society for community college students.
“I like to be with my students,” she says. “I enjoy being in the classroom because I like to learn. Every semester, my students teach me something new.”
Before joining FRCC, Medeiros taught for six years at East Los Angeles Community College. She has a bachelor’s in comparative literature from the University of Oregon and a master’s in comparative literature from Indiana University.
