For Nina Mazloff, being a professor means being a guide, nurturer, and partner with her students in the learning process. Early in each semester, she steadfastly encourages them to be actively engaged in her classes, having found that the more frequent their classroom participation, the more information they will retain.
Before joining the Becker College faculty, Professor Mazloff held positions as a fifth-grade teacher and a preschool director. As a lifelong learner, she has kept her skills fresh by regularly enrolling in classes at Fitchburg State University. Professor Mazloff earned her master’s and bachelor’s degrees in elementary education from Lesley University in 1973 and Boston University in 1971, respectively.
