With her original interest and training in teaching, Dr. Glasser jumped at the opportunity in 1981 to begin teaching college recreation courses. She has been teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses ever since. Her many students, over the years, have been from a variety of backgrounds and cultures which has enhanced the educational experience for all, including Dr. Glasser herself. As an adjunct professor, her students appreciate her professional experience that brings text books to life. When actual experiences, scenarios and challenges are described and presented to students, it encourages them to think in a professional manner as to how they might handle a similar, realistic situation. She receives very positive feedback from both students and superiors with respect to her teaching knowledge, approach, passion and enthusiasm.
She has also developed and conducted numerous training programs for staff, parents and peers. She prides herself on a comprehensive, detailed oriented, straight-forward approach to training, effective communication methods and her ability to tailor the presentation of information for specific types of trainee groups.
As an avid believer in the many positive benefits of mentoring, she has, of course, been a mentor, but she has also been a mentee, having been mentored throughout her career. In addition, she co-developed and presented an educational session on mentoring at a national professional conference.
Dr. Glasser can provide a positive, enjoyable, comfortable atmosphere in which to convey quality training where participants obtain the information they require both comprehensively and confidently.
