Domenica Devine, Member-At-Large

An important part of being an educator is working to maintain the health of the
institution. As such, I am proud to be a working member of the Part Time
Faculty Association. We, the part-time faculty, teach the majority of classes
and need to be treated as an integral part of this noble endeavor. My skill set is
unique. As a scientist, I am a researcher: organized, clear, and exacting. As a
former circus performer, I can juggle ideas and the letters of acronyms as well
as walk the tightrope between educators and administrations. A former
stage/road manager, I recognize how important it is to balance personalities,
and work towards consensus and compromise. Above all, I am a proud
educator.

George Torbert, Member-At-Large

I am a retired public school teacher with 28 years experience. I have taught ESL at Allan Hancock college for 14 years. My main purpose of teaching ESL is to motivate limited English students to raise their English level for the purpose of obtaining a better paid job, become citizens, perhaps receive a 4 year college degree, and inform students that Social Security income is necessary upon retirement. The majority of limited English students do not receive Social Security income according to the officials at the Social Security office.
