WOMEN AT CABRILLO Introduces Nancy Phillips!!!
In Edward's words...
Nancy has been a huge supporter of students and has paid for food and coffee for them while they are studying in the HUB. In addition, she set up proctoring for Math students who have struggled to keep up with the class. She’s created Read math classes. She took on all the tutor training for the college with Math 158T eliminated. She has promoted supplemental learning for students to create equity amongst the student population without forcing departments to change their expectations. She has led and coordinated embedded tutoring with other departments. She opened the larger room to math students when, in the past there was no room in the MLC for additional students to sit down. She has inspired a new generation of educators to look beyond the confines of the classroom environment to help students where they are instead of where the class is expected to be. She has supported students in sticking with their education even when it appears to be unbearably tough. And students will remember Nancy as a person who inspired them to follow their dreams. All of this while she taught ESL classes to parents in high school evening classes.

Nancy started the HUB and will be retiring this semester after 23 years of service!
Nancy has been a part of the Basic Skills Committees over the years, the Library Committee, and the Early Alert Committee. She has also applied for and won grants and funding for supplemental education that no doubt have made a huge difference in the services Cabrillo has been able to provide.
