My name is Alex Kocol, I have been working at Glendale College since the summer of 2010 and teaching in the Social Sciences Division since 2013. The courses I have taught include early and modern U.S. history (HIST 117 & 118), American government (PoliSci 101 & 106), contemporary world problems (PoliSci110), and political theory (PoliSci 104). My interests revolve around political history, American regionalism, as well as the development of political consciousness and identity.
Through my teaching, I try to encourage students to empathize with unfamiliar concepts and perspectives. Education, by cultivating curiosity and inquisitiveness, has more than just the power to position students for a successful career: It can help them lead more productive and fulfilling lives. Glendale College’s focus on student success makes it a truly special place and I hope to contribute to an environment where individuals feel both challenged and welcomed.
