Instructors Win Camden County College's Adjunct Teaching Awards


A quartet of part-time instructors has received the 2012 Camden County College Adjunct Faculty Teaching Excellence Awards.

All four recipients were recognized for their instructional expertise and their service to their departments and the College. The winners also were lauded for helping their students work to their potential through various teaching approaches.

Honored were:

● Linda Berger, a basics skills mathematics instructor in the Division of Transitional Studies. Berger dedicates herself to working with students inside and outside the classroom, spending hours of her own time tutoring them at the Camden City Campus.

● Kirsten Cristinziani, a psychology instructor in the Division of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. Cristinziani employs a multi-modal style that often has her using lecture, discussion, video vignettes, PowerPoint presentations, overhead projection and chalkboard outlines in a single class session to ensure her students grasp challenging course material.
● Sheila Griffiths, a business and marketing instructor in the Division of Business, Computer and Technical Studies. Griffiths teaches in a student-centered manner that involves constant monitoring of their comprehension, mentoring them about their professional concerns and developing new course approaches at the departmental level.

● Fred Steinke, a mathematics instructor in the Division of Math, Science and Health Careers. Steinke’s passion for teaching is well-known to both his colleagues and his students, and this enthusiasm helps him continuously inspire his pupils to work consistently toward their goals.
