Great Professors Make a Great College Experience at MPTC

Nervous, Surprised, and Now Confident about her Education. Meet Jesse Lance. 

“I was extremely nervous going back to school at the age of 38.  Some people said it was a waste of time.  Others said I wouldn’t make it. I worried the professors wouldn’t be understanding. Boy, was I wrong!

When I walked into class on my first day, I was totally surprised at how accommodating and understanding all my professors were.  They were prepared to make everyone feel welcome and inviting.  Not once did I feel left out or that I didn’t belong in that class.  I needed this more than they could know.

I love walking into my classes each week and receiving a hello when I walk through the door.  The professors are upbeat and engaging, keeping everyone’s attention while learning. I don’t think I’ve seen one person sleep through a class yet.

One of the professors I have had the opportunity to engage with is Dr. Rebecca Leichtfuss in the English Composition I course.  I’ve gained valuable knowledge from this course with learning the four C’s of writing, the nine rules of comma usage, and, proper business email etiquette. I looked forward to attending this class every week.

In the end, I’m confident that great professors make for a great college and learning experience. MPTC is the way to go!”

Jesse Lance is a current student at Moraine Park, enrolled in the nursing program.
