Truman College Professor Receives AATSP Outstanding Community College Teacher of the Year Award” on April 12, 2022.
Dr. Maretha Roberts worked in biological research on the East Coast for many years before discovering her passion for teaching.
Dr. Megan Craig was a practicing dentist before finding her way to City Colleges. She started at Kennedy-King College and then moved to Malcolm X College to work in the Dental Hygiene Clinic as the supervising dentist.
That’s when a full-time teaching position opened up, and, having gotten to know many of the students in the clinic, Dr. Craig couldn’t pass up the opportunity to apply. She now serves as the second year clinic coordinator and remains excited about helping her students find success in the field.
“They’re incredibly dedicated and passionate, so [I] just feed off of that energy,” she said.
