Judy Bush Crofton

Lecturer
Scholarships Coordinator


"There’s nothing like walking into a classroom on the first day of school and feeling like you can make a difference in the lives of the students you teach. Whether it’s a group of freshmen in English 105 or a more seasoned group of students in English 318, I relish the opportunity to connect with these young adults and help them to become the kind of analytical, critical thinkers I know they can be. To this end, I provide my students with readings that are both intellectually challenging and provocative and foster a classroom environment that is warm and inviting. I want my students to view themselves as a community of learners, unafraid to question and probe the world around them. Ultimately, as a result of my classes, I want my students to grow as human beings."
