Excellence Awards Recipient Detail Information

Mary Jane Popojas
Professor of Nursing,
Community College of Allegheny County
Statement:  My enthusiasm helps me to promote the learning of new concepts by gaining the interest of the students. Encouraging students to participate in critical thinking about nursing and practice hands-on work in the nursing lab stimulates this content. I use a variety of teaching strategies to meet the needs of students with different learning styles. Words of wisdom; treat everyone you meet like you want to be treated. Strive for excellence, not perfection. Don't be afraid to say, "I made a mistake," Don't be afraid to say, "I don't know." Stop blaming others, take responsibility for every area of your life. These quotes were taken from Life's Little Instructions by H. Jackson Brown Jr.
