My name is Scott. I have taught developmental algebra at Jacksonville State University, AL for 15 years. Historically, MS100 has had very low passing rates and knocks many students out of completing their 4-yr degree. Jan brought NROC to JSU in 2012, and everything changed! She has been at the center of a cultural shift that links the Math Dept. and Learning Skills (where I teach) in the effort to smooth the transition from HS algebra to college algebra. Passing rates have shot up as a result. Jan has done this completely outside of her regular job requirements, just for the joy of seeing more students succeed. She truly represents the spirit of ac4p!
