Angel Spyrou Beets
Associate Professor, Liberal Arts and Communications
Ivy Tech Community College
Statement:  I believe it is exceptionally important to provide students with real-world examples for the concepts I teach. When I was a student, I struggled in classes that only presented theories or definitions and longed for examples to which I could relate. Now that I have the opportunity to lead a class, I try to help students put our course information into context. I tell personal stories, use current events, or have them come up with examples of their own. This helps them learn the course material and apply it to their lives.
