Kathleen George, M.Ed., has been a member of the Becker community for a number of years. Her love of teaching is firmly rooted in the enjoyment she derives from interacting and nurturing relationships with students—particularly watching them develop each semester and then graduate to meaningful careers.
George teaches computer application courses and also developes and teaches technology and society, a course required of all students. She has been highly involved in designing, developing, and teaching online courses in computer applications, presentation software, and technology and society.
George’s involvement at Becker College goes well beyond the classroom. She has also participated in a variety of campus committees, including the Freshman Academic Advising Workgroup, the Academic Affairs Committee, the Student Affairs Committee, the Academic Achievement Scholarship Committee, and the Technology Committee, among others.
Before joining the Becker College faculty in a part-time capacity in 1979, George was a student, earning an associate’s degree. She then earned a bachelor’s degree from Salem State College and a master’s in education from Worcester State College. She also earned a certificate from the Clark University Computer Institute and became certified as a Microsoft Office specialist, and has taken other computer-related courses at various area colleges.
George was a full-time instructor in the secretarial sciences department from 1985 to 1998, when she transitioned into her current role. She proudly notes that her Becker College experience is also a family affair: two of her children have attended Becker College, and her mother is a graduate of the Becker Business College.
