We are a First Year Learning Community at CityTech (NYCCT) that unites two professors, myself (Sarah Schmerler, English Dept.) and M. Genevieve Hitchings, Communications Design. I teach ENG 1101, and Prof. Hitchings teaches Typography, COM D 1127. We share the same students in both our classes in an effort to build unity and communication. It’s been proven that Freshmen have better skill retention and stay with the college experience when we, the faculty, combine our forces and work together.
