Every day, my students are among 'today's lucky 10,000.' I get to show them something that, while it might not be new, is new to them! Their excitement keeps me excited about what I am doing. ”


Bill Finney brings a dynamic learning experience to his students and has been at CWC for more than five years. "There is a particular sound to a lab full of happy students, I look forward to that, knowing that they will learn best when they are enjoying what they are doing." Finney attests the inspiration of some of his lessons to the small campus and the faculty from other disciplines. "I have been able to meet and work with outstanding faculty, from many different disciplines. At a large, four-year institution, I would have had to work much harder to connect with faculty in so many other disciplines. This cross-pollination has inspired many of the lessons I teach." 

"I also love getting to know my students as well as I do.  Getting to see them grow as young adults is very motivating. I get to teach a wide variety of courses here, giving me something new to learn as well as helping me grow as an instructor every year."
