In Solidarity: Notes from the Chicago Teachers Union Strike Ed Harkness Professor of English firstname.lastname@example.org My son, Ned Harkness, served as a Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) delegate for his school, Lincoln Elementary, during the recently – and successfully – concluded strike. He sends his best wishes to his fellow AFT union brothers and sisters, along with his pictures of the strike as it was happening at small gatherings outside of city schools and in large marches in the streets of downtown Chicago. Strike resolutions are, of course, based on compromise. Neither side gets all it wants, but Ned reports that the final results were very favorable for the CTU and its 32,000 members. To learn more about what they gained, and where they fell short, see this September 19 Washington Post article. Ned adds that the historic strike (the first in Chicago in 25 years), came during a time when unions – and teachers, for that matter – were under attack. They still are. He sees the walk-out as a victory for unions in general and an inspiring example of what can happen when an organized and unified membership stands up to say “Enough is enough.” The union challenged a very

President’s Corner Accreditation—Commendations & Recommendations Amy J. Kinsel Professor of History & AFT Local 1950 President email@example.com Fall weather has arrived at Shoreline after an unusually sunny and dry September. The leaves on campus are brightly colored, the air is becoming crisp, and the sidewalks are wet again. Fall quarter is in full swing, with students filling classrooms, computer labs, office hours, and the Library. The busy-ness of people rushing along College pathways lifts our spirits. The sight of enthusiastic students attending special-event lectures and debates reminds us why we chose to become educators. As faculty, we embrace our students and our work. Along with administrators, board members, staff, and students, Shoreline faculty showed off our campus and the work we do here to nine evaluators from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities who visited the College October 1 through 3. During their visit, evaluators assessed the College for how well it meets five accreditation standards that measure our performance as an institution of higher learning: Mission, Resources, Planning, Assessment, and Mission Fulfillment. Faculty from across the institution met with evaluators, helping them to develop as accurate a picture as possible of what the College is doing well and of areas where the College might seek to improve.
College governance committees, as advisors, as peers, as mentors they are doing more with less so that students can learn, achieve, and succeed, and so that students do not feel the effects of the multiple budget cuts the College has recently endured. Comments I heard from evaluators praised faculty for their sincere commitment to student learning and success and to the intellectual and professional vibrancy of the institution. The evaluators could tell that for faculty (and for students, staff, and administrators as well), Shoreline is more than an institution: it is a community.
“...the evaluators also repeatedly asked the same question of faculty they met: how sustainable are your current efforts?”
But the evaluators also repeatedly asked the same question of faculty they met: how sustainable are your current efforts?
The evaluators picked up on how overworked most faculty (and others) on this campus really are. They wondered how long faculty can compensate for the work of missing colleagues, how long we will be able to carry on without adequate resources, how long we can keep hoping that this year will be the last year before we turn a corner and see a more stable future for the College ahead.
At the end of their visit, the evaluators presented an oral summary of the commendations (compliments) What did the evaluators find? and recommendations (criticisms) they expect to include in their formal accreditation report. Among In the several meetings I attended, evaluators saw a their commendations was praise for College employdedicated faculty that is fully committed to stuees for their resilience, collaboration, and dedicadents. Faculty in all disciplines and programs retion to excellence and student success in the face of counted over and over how in classrooms, in labs, on budget reductions. But among the team’s recom2
mendations was a warning that those budget cuts have led to serious reductions in student services, library resources, and advising that undermine the College’s implementation of proven student success strategies. The College will shortly receive a draft of the team’s accreditation report, to be followed by a final report. Based on the recommendations announced already, everyone at the College will be called upon to redouble our efforts to communicate clearly and to work together respectfully to map out a path toward rebuilding the College rather than continuing along a road to retreat. As Federation President, I am already working with the Administration to explore ways to address the expected recommendations concerning student services lost because of faculty layoffs. Your Federation leadership is committed to ensuring that faculty workload is sustainable and fairly and fully compensated. The final accreditation report will provide markers to guide us on our rebuilding path.
Above: The CTU Strike Band continued from page 1 powerful city mayor – and a famous Democrat, no less –Rahm Emanuel, and Emanuel’s handpicked Chicago Public School Board. Many of its members, Ned reminded me, are themselves powerful Chicago business leaders and CEOs. It’s not surprising, then, that they tend to favor business models for education: voucher schools, the wide use of standardized testing, merit pay for teachers, more administrative and less union control regarding teacher hiring, and so on. In short, these business leaders are often the driving force behind what many now call the corporatizing of American education. Among other issues, it was this business-model trend that the strike challenged. When Ned called to say the week-long strike had ended, I asked him if he’d seen any confrontations or tense moments while on the picket line. None at all, he told me. He even had kind words for the police, who performed their jobs well in securing the rights of free assembly and monitoring the marches for the safety of all. The one detail Ned said might not have made the national coverage of the strike is how festive were the gatherings and marches, and how strong was the support of parents and local citizens, who often honked in approval or turned up unannounced with coffee and pizza for the striking teachers. That, he said, was a powerful thing to witness. Special thanks to Ned Harkness for sharing his story through his father and for the pictures! 3

Circumnavigating Seattle Bruce McCutcheon Professor of ESL firstname.lastname@example.org During this summer I realized my goal of walking the perimeter of the Seattle city limits. I’ve been asked why I made this two-day walk and I don’t really have an answer that will satisfy people who don’t have obsessive personalities. All I can say is that I started a kind of hobby of collecting cities by walking around them after I lived in Barcelona. I always thought when I lived in Barcelona that it might be possible to walk around the city in a single day, but never attempted such a feat during my two years of teaching ESL there. Only on a visit to Spain some years later did I commit myself to that task (it took about six hours and I’m sure I didn’t include every neighborhood) and in a sense I’ve been committed to collecting cities by circumventing them ever since and, as my wife will tell you, I really should be committed. My Seattle journey began when I parked in the SCC parking lot on Aug. 23 at about 6:30 a.m. I walked to the corner of 145th and Greenwood where the walk officially began . I walked directly east until I hit the Burke Gilman trail and headed south to the UW area. I crossed the Montlake Bridge and continued past the Arboretum and along Lake Washington Blvd. until I reached Seward Park and then proceeded to the Rainier neighborhood. The walk from Rainier to West Seattle is too complicated to explain here (I depended on Mapquest directions). When I reached West Seattle I’d been walking for 13 hours. I caught a bus and came directly back to SCC where I found my car and drove home for a night’s rest. The next morning I drove back to SCC and caught a 6:00 bus back to West Seattle and continued where I’d left off (the second day I was wearing sandals because my baby toe had swelled up to the size of a cherry tomato and wouldn’t fit into a walking shoe). Beginning at about 8:30 a.m. I walked from the bottom of West Seattle around by Alki Beach and then crossed over into the downtown area via the Spokane Bridge. I hoofed it to the waterfront area and made my way to the Magnolia Bridge. I have to admit that I only skimmed the edge of Discovery Park, but then I crossed over to the Shilshole area via the ship locks. From there I headed north to Golden Gardens and took a steep set of steps up to 85th St. Then I zig-zagged my way north until I reached 3rd Ave. from where I dragged myself past Carkeek Park and to my starting point at 145th and Greenwood. By this time it was about 9:30 pm, another 13hour walk. The supplies I carried with me were minimal: water that I replenished when I could, a lunch and some snacks, sunscreen, my cell phone, and a jacket that I needed only for an hour or so in the morning. The most necessary item, aside from water, was my iPod as music really keeps me moving. Well, that was two days of my summer vacation. I feel as though I still haven’t done a proper circumnavigation of the city because I missed parts of a few outlying neighborhoods. So I may start training for another attempt when we begin to approach the summer of 2013. Anyone interested in joining me? 6
Art Happenings Ruth Gregory Associate Faculty of Cinema email@example.com The arts faculty are always proudly putting their work on display and this fall is no exception. Come check out some of the great work that your peers have created on campus and in the community. Howard Hsu’s (Associate Faculty of Art) latest exhibit—Industrial Evolution— is on display at the Photographic Center Northwest until October 28th. Here is a description of this show from his website: industrial evolution is a photographic series documenting Seattle’s industrial district in transition under the shadow of economic recession and the pull of overseas manufacturing. it is a look at the history, the current success and struggles, and the future of this industrial center within an increasingly tech driven region and city. started in 2011, the project captures the diverse landscape, residents and people, and the confluence of the traditional industries with new businesses: start-up companies emerging alongside traditional steel mills, martial arts studios making neighbors with cement factories, the changing character and feel of south of downtown Seattle captured in silver-gelatin print.
The Music department is also presenting work by faculty and professional musicians alike this fall. Below are some of their events this fall. For more information about these and other music events please visit their website. SCC Piano Series October 28th—Campus Theater at 3pm (Piano scholarship fund event) "Prism Concert" November 15th—Campus Theater at 7:30pm (Music scholarship fundraiser event) SCC Student Recital November 30th—Music Building, room 818 at 12:30 (free admission) SCC Student Small Ensemble Recital—December 7th Music Building, room 818 (free admission) The Performing Arts department is putting on several shows this fall—Deep Night (October 24th—27th) and Dog Sees God (November 28 & 29 plus December 1,6,7, & 8). They also have started a new scheme whereby you can buy season tickets to all the theater, opera, and musical productions for the 2012-2013 school year.

Union Membership Amy J. Kinsel Professor of History & AFT Local 1950 President firstname.lastname@example.org SCCFT Local 1950 (the Federation) represents all faculty at Shoreline Community College by negotiating and maintaining the faculty collective bargaining agreement (the Contract). Union dues are automatically deducted from all faculty paychecks in consideration of the representation the Federation provides all faculty through collective bargaining and ongoing maintenance of the Contract. While all full-time and part-time faculty are represented by the Federation in matters concerning the Contract, all faculty are not automatically members of the local union. Faculty must sign up to become members of SCCFT Local 1950 by filling out and submitting a membership form. Joining the union has benefits! Member benefits include the right to vote in Federation elections for union officers, Executive-Board representatives, Federation Constitution and By Laws revisions and amendments, and Contract ratifications. If you are not a member of the Federation, you will not receive Federation ballots and you will not be able to vote on any of these important Federation matters. As union members, we are part of the larger union movement locally and nationally. Our county, state, and federal AFT and AFL-CIO organizations represent faculty in Olympia and in Washington, D.C. on budgeting and policy matters that affect our daily working lives and preserve our rights as workers. In addition, through the local union’s affiliation with national AFT programs, SCCFT Local 1950 members are eligible for low-cost home refinancing, free consumer credit counseling, and group rates on home, auto, and life insurance, among other benefits. For faculty who would like to sign up as a member of SCCFT Local 1950, a membership form is located on the SCCFT webpage under “About Us” (or print out the form on the next page). Faculty who have never filled out this form should fill it out and submit it if they wish to vote in Federation elections. If you filled out this form previously and have since changed your name or your mailing address, you should update this information by filling out a new form. Please contact SCCFT 1st VP Kira Wennstrom with questions about union membership or to submit completed membership forms. Faculty members who choose not to become Federation members may seek a refund of the small portion of their Federation dues that the local union does not submit to cover county labor council, and state and federal AFT per capita payments. Contact SCCFT Local 1950 Treasurer Shannon Flynn for details.
Overtures Introducing: Emily Sprafka-Coleman, Farhana Rahman, and Jin Lee Leoned Gines Professor of Biology email@example.com In our new column, Overtures, we send out existing faculty and staff to interview and profile new members of our campus community.
Emily Sprafka-Coleman Associate Faculty of Chemistry Joined the Shoreline CC faculty in Fall 2012 Course: CHEM& 131: Intro to Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry What Emily did before teaching, and how she got interested in teaching: Emily comes from a long line of teachers; her mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother were all in education. Her mom, who teaches high school math in Colorado, had the biggest influence on Emily’s career choice; it’s something she’s always wanted to do. After completing her undergraduate studies in Minnesota and graduate work at the UW (she was trained as an organic chemist), Emily had a brief stint as a consultant with Seattle Genetics before devoting all her time to teaching. In addition to her course here, Emily also teaches courses at South Seattle CC and Bellevue College. Biggest challenge in teaching: Finding novel ways of explaining concepts. It’s a challenge she thoroughly enjoys! The course Emily dreams about teaching/developing: History of Chemistry. She thinks it would be especially fun to look at how the atomic model has progressed through the years. She would also enjoy introducing students to physical scientists who have made significant contributions to the field, and whose names are not Einstein, Mendeleev, or Bohr. What Emily would do if she had three months with no obligations: She would travel. Her favorite places so far include London and Norway; she has actually spent some time living in Norway. Emily is especially enthralled by the scenery of the Norwegian countryside. Fun fact about Emily: She speaks five languages and understands six, including Norwegian, Swedish, Spanish, and Italian. 10
Farhana Rahman Associate Faculty of Engineering Joined the Shoreline CC faculty in Fall 2012 Course: ENGR114: Engineering Graphics What Farhana did before teaching, and how she got interested in teaching: Farhana grew up in Bangladesh. She did her graduate work in civil engineering in Canada and the University of Kansas. Her work focused on highway construction, particularly the development of economical and environmentallyfriendly road construction materials; Farhana’s research findings have actually been put to use by the Kansas Department of Transportation. She has always had some interest in teaching, since her mother is a zoologist who teaches. After thoroughly enjoying interacting with students as a graduate teaching assistant, she decided to earn her Ph.D. in large part so she could teach. In addition to her course here, Farhana also teaches at Seattle University. Biggest challenge in teaching: Finding a way to stay on schedule, particularly since her students ask so many engaging, think-outside-thebox questions. The course Farhana dreams about teaching/developing: A course on the construction of materials, with heavy emphasis on practical applications. What Farhana would do if she had three months with no obligations: She would travel, especially to calm and quiet locales in the countryside. Some of her favorite places include Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon. Her least favorite is any place that has snakes! Fun fact about Farhana: She has a really hard time going on road trips without analyzing the road surface. Here are Farhana’s unofficial evaluations of some local thoroughfares: I-5: 3 out of 10. She dings I-5 for the potholes, and for being less-than-optimized for snow conditions. SR 520: 6 out of 10 I-405: 5 out of 10 I-90: 4 out of 10 In comparison to Kansas highways, Farhana says they’re not too bad.
Jin Lee Associate Faculty of Engineering Joined the Shoreline CC faculty in Fall 2012 Courses: ENGR100: Intro to Engineering & Design ENGR 114: Engineering Graphics ENGR 225: Mechanics of Materials What Jin did before teaching, and how he got interested in teaching: Jin grew up in Korea, and came to the U.S. to study mechanical engineering at George Washington University. Since then, he has also studied at Ohio State University and the UW. In between studies, he spent 26 years in industry. This includes work as an automotive engineer with Kia Motors, a consultant with Samsung, and an automotive engineer in Ohio. As a graduate student, he had the opportunity to work as a teaching assistant in a physics lab, which piqued his interest in teaching. In fact, his main motivation for coming back to earn his Ph.D. was so that he could teach. Biggest challenge in teaching: Keeping up with all the knowledge that’s associated with his field! Jin also enjoys the challenge of developing healthy relationships with students, especially given the many different personalities we encounter as teachers. The course Jin dreams about teaching/developing: There isn’t necessarily one specific course that Jin dreams of developing. Instead, he would love to develop an entire mechanical engineering program from scratch (like a true engineer!). Building all the courses within a program from the ground up is something he would really enjoy. What Jin would do if he had three months with no obligations: Build stuff and problem-solve with his kids. Also, he would play some golf. Jin’s especially interested in checking out Bandon Dunes in Oregon. Fun fact about Jin: He does not enjoy public speaking. One of Jin’s great “Aha!” moments was realizing that good public speaking and good teaching aren’t necessarily the same thing.
Introducing: Kai Kohlsdorf Rachel David Assistant Dean of Social Sciences & Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies firstname.lastname@example.org
Kai Kohlsdorf Associate Faculty of Gender and Women’s Studies Joined Shoreline CC faculty in Fall 2012 Course: GWS 284: Gender, Race and Class Kai joined the SCC faculty this quarter and is teaching “Gender, Race and Class” in the Gender and Women’s Studies department. I was excited to bring someone of Kai’s experience and background to the GWS department. His academic background is in Cultural Studies, Queer Theory and Transgender Theory. Kai has a B.A .and M.A. in Feminist Studies and is working on his Ph.D. in the same field at the University of Washington. He’s taught dozens of GWS classes at several institutions, but this is his first time teaching at a community college. He is currently working on a paper entitled “Racing RuPaul’s Drag Race: Ethnicity and Gender in the ‘Post’-Moment.” Kai also teaches and works at the Q Center, and tutors at UW. He is hoping to re-start the QLTBG club here at SCC. In his scant free time he likes to run and read, and given the chance would also knit. He also loves tattoos – ask him about his Popples tattoo. Kai identifies as trans and uses “he” pronouns; as a trans person that’s something he usually has to explain to everyone he meets. Please show Kai a warm, friendly SCC welcome!
Making Waves Judy Penn is the 2012 Exceptional Faculty Award Winner! Kira Wennstrom Professor of Biology email@example.com During the Fall Convocation in September the campus witnessed the formal recognition of something a lot of us already knew: Professor Judy Penn is an exceptional faculty member! Now in her twentythird year at Shoreline Community College, Judy has encouraged and influenced thousands of allied health students, authored and co-authored several college textbooks, mentored and collaborated with dozens of colleagues, and interacted with countless others as she has sought to make the college and the community a better place.
Shoreline Farmers Market this year as an outgrowth of his service-learning project. “It’s all his hard work,” Judy said, “but it’s an example of how service learning can have far-reaching effects. I’ve loved focusing on service learning in my courses these past few years, because it allows me, with a simple requirement in a course, to assist many agencies with badly needed support for their clients AND I am fostering that culture of service within my students. Hopefully, it’s a life-changing experience for them.” I asked Judy what keeps her motivated. “It’s really that I love teaching, and what I do on campus is my way of helping my students to succeed.” Deep Roots is just one of the latest in a long series of projects Judy has worked on with that goal in mind. Her sabbatical project in 1997 established the Biology Learning Center in a tiny room just off the courtyard outside the biology labs. Staffed at first by student volunteers, the center has grown into the Biology/ Chemistry Learning Center, staffed by paid tutors and serving hundreds of students every quarter. “I’m really glad the BCLC has been sustained over all of these years,” Judy says. The center offers a place for students to gather to work on homework, examine microscope slides and models, and get help from experienced tutors who have succeeded in the same biology and chemistry courses that the students are currently taking.
“Judy... has sought to make the college and the community a better place.”
At risk of straining a metaphor (bear with me here, folks) Judy’s roots run deep and her branches spread wide across campus. In 2010, along with Guru Dorje of Learning Center North (LCN), Judy founded SCC’s Community Garden—appropriately named Deep Roots. Though the garden originally started in a tiny strip of land beside the greenhouse in the biology courtyard, it has since expanded to include more than 1000 square feet of space. Raised beds built from reclaimed wood grow tomatoes, peppers, root vegetables, peas, greens, and squash; all tended by students in Judy’s popular Sustainable Gardening class and students from LCN. More than two years after it began the garden continues to flourish, providing much-needed fresh produce to the Hopelink Food Bank as well as an incomparable service learning experience for all participants. Brendan Lemkin, one of the first students in Judy’s Sustainable Gardening course, successfully established the 14
It’s not just SCC students that benefit from Judy’s energy and expertise. She has worked on a number of textbooks and other educational projects used by students nationwide. Along with colleague Elizabeth Hanson, Judy wrote Anatomy and Physiology for English Language Learners. One of the first textbooks of its kind, the book is intended to help ease ESL students’ path toward careers in the allied health sciences. “Writing things for students is fun,” Judy says. She has also co-authored Get Ready for Microbiology with Lorie Garrett, aimed at students who need a little extra help with their math and study skills so that they are set up for success in the challenging science curriculum.
Judy’s expertise in online education has been recognized in other ways as well. She was invited Professor of Biology, Judy Penn to be on the Virtual College Implementation Team for Instructional Programs, and has been representing faculty on that body for nearly a year. Recently, she was Judy has also been a champion of online education. invited along with Ruthann Duffy and Ann-Garnsey Her Sustainable Gardening class evolved from a daily Harter to teach a workshop on Faculty Learning face-to-face format course in Horticulture that Communities for the well-respected Sloan Consortistruggled to attract enough students each quarter.
