The loss to our community of talented and dedicated instructors, mentors, advisers and visionaries cannot be fully expressed. In the 2013-2014 academic year, Northern New Mexico College has lost over 25% of its full-time faculty through removal or resignation. Some--though not all--are pictured below. Their presence is already deeply missed by community, students, staff, and faculty.
While I am honored to be considered among those who are missed from Northern, I feel like I need to clarify that my resignation does not represent any kind of protest against Northern's administration. While I feel for those who have been asked to leave, and I understand why those who chose to leave did so, I left for reasons that were independent of the college's leadership or operations ... It is because of many of the people who are no longer at Northern that I felt so appreciated in my position at the library. I wish the best for everyone who has separated from the college as well as those who remain to teach and mentor its students.
Thank you for your work to ensure that everyone may feel informed.
