Dr. Almeida -- Helping Students To Find A Career

Dr. A Recruiting Inner City Kids

The Caring Professor

Dr. Almeida is a college professor who cares and is constantly interacting with students in order to better serve and find the best in them. It isn’t atypical for him to stop in the middle of the hallway and start engaging with students, literally. He takes this approach in order to expose students to his personality outside the classroom, which he believes is important for students to be acquainted with — the personality of a professor outside the classroom. 

 

The Latino Professor

He has also contributed to the Praeger Handbook of Latino Education in the U.S. During his career in higher education, he has helped hundreds of latino males and females to graduate from college in multiple states. Minority students overall and latino students in particular, seek Dr. A for comfort and advise about life in and after college. He is able to speak with latino students in their mother language creating an immediate rapport with latino students.  

The Citizen Professor

Dr. Almeida is a great department citizen who celebrates his colleague’s victories and is often seen on campus speaking with professors from different departments. He finds enjoyment in collaborating with peers and seeing his institutions succeed. Always smiling and with a positive attitude, Dr. A is truly a unique kind of college professor who celebrates the success of others and is always ready to assist his colleagues to accomplish their tasks.
