Seven McHenry County College full-time faculty members completed a three-year probationary period and recently received tenure status. While faculty members benefit from job security at MCC for the rest of their careers, students benefit from the depth of knowledge, teaching excellence, personal qualities and commitment to service these instructors bring to the college.    

The newly tenured MCC faculty include: Robin Deak, psychology instructor of Lake in the Hills; Tina Drzal, culinary management instructor of Lake in the Hills; Anitha Korla, mathematics instructor of Crystal Lake; Allison Minicz, health information technology instructor of Sleepy Hollow; Sherry Ridge, business instructor of McHenry; Justin Schmitz, photography instructor of Crystal Lake; and Melissa Veljasevic, early childhood education instructor of Huntley.

The instructors are evaluated in four major areas including academic preparation, teaching effectiveness, contributions to the college community and participation in community service. The instructors also prepared an extensive teaching portfolio.

           “Each candidate for tenure has demonstrated instructional excellence in support of MCC’s mission and goals,” said Chris Gray, Ph.D., vice president of Academic and Student Affairs. “They all have achieved a level of performance and admirable commitment to our students and we look forward to their significant contributions to the college in the years ahead.”
