Marty's Message

It is said that teaching is both art and science. In CPS, great teachers are not born, they are made; and we know that achievement in teaching and learning doesn't come easy.
Be sure to read the stories in this Monday Message about our faculty involvement in the Teaching Partners and Tech Select programs; and about CPS faculty involvement in the annual UWSP Teaching Conference. These are great examples of the high commitment put in to teaching and learning within our college.
I am proud of the hard work of our faculty and staff; and of the inspired teaching that results.
Marty Loy,
