Carol Hammond started teaching English courses at the college on a part-time basis in 1983; she became full-time in 1987. Over the course of her career at YC, Ms. Hammond taught a full array of English courses. She loved teaching in the classroom, the interchange between students and faculty, and student in-class presentations.
Carol also had numerous non-teaching duties. In 1987, she was the liaison with the Prescott Campus Library. At that time, all library instructions went through the English Department and she worked to bring fresh ideas to the library orientations. As her career progressed, she was an Academic Advisor for three years, English Department Head for four years, full-time Outcomes Assessment Coordinator for three years, and a mentor to faculty incorporating assessments into their classes.
She appreciated the opportunities the college and teaching provided her to learn and share. She adapted composition and literature courses to the online environment and taught one of the first online English classes. She also helped the English Department develop its portfolio assessment project. This activity led to her collaboration with other institutions (NAU and Dine College) on portfolio assessment.
Team teaching with other faculty members also brought her great satisfaction: Gennie Fuemmeler (Intro to Education), Kathryn Reisdorfer and Michael Ruddell (Portfolio), Roz Ashby (Women Worldwide), Ken Abbott (Science, Fiction & Cinema), Edith Baker (Women in Literature) and Lenora Warnock (Reading/Composition courses).
