“With humor and compassion, Bachus reveals the transformational work that occurs in community colleges in helping students reach their educational goals. He intertwines his own mishaps in a foreign culture with the challenges that students face as they enter the new world of academia. Teaching and learning occurs by both faculty and students in this must-read book for anyone employed at a community college.”— Kathleen Hetherington, President, Howard Community College

“As someone who teaches in another field, you made clearer and more explicit the teaching and learning processes that I rely on every day, even if I didn’t always have the theory behind it. Your book is so much more than just about community college teaching. Your humanity shines through on every page.”  –Paula Behrens, Architecture Dept. CCP
