Yavapai College Career

Barry Golden began at the College teaching part-time. He became a full-time instructor in 1984 at the Verde Valley Campus. He taught Anatomy & Physiology, Biology, Chemistry, and Microbiology classes at first. For awhile, he was the only Science instructor there. As the student population grew and more faculty were hired, his focus shifted to Anatomy & Physiology. He helped design a lab on that campus when bond election money became available.

He moved back to the Prescott Campus after 13 years. While at Prescott, he continued to teach Anatomy & Physiology classes but also began teaching classes on AIDS; those classes were most satisfying for him because it was an opportunity to challenge students to change their behavior.

He enjoyed being in the classroom: he felt that he learned the most about how to teach from his students.

Barry retired from full-time teaching in 2003 and has continued to teach part-time.

Mr. Golden was recognized as Emeritus Faculty May, 2009.
