I attend Ivy Tech in Richmond and I have nothing but praise for the faculty!
They are wonderful, kind and will bend over backwards to help any of us succeed!
I have asked a million questions about some of the dumbest things, and never once have gotten a snide comment or a snippy remark.
Any one of them at any time will be glad to show and re-show a student how to do a skill or to talk over a problem.
And I don't think it is any different for an older student or a younger student. All of our instructors treat all of us the same (and I am older than some of them!) These type of Instructors are what's needed to help student succeed in the program of choice. Wouldn't you think a rude or hateful Instructor would make you want to quit? It would me. I would feel so intimidated by her/him that I wouldn't want to go on. I would feel inferior and in turn, feel downhearted and alone...
THANK GOD I DON"T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THAT!!!!!
I think my Instructors are great!
