Angel Morales has been a lecturer of Theatre and Speech at Hostos Community College for the past eight years. He has been teaching Introduction to Theater (Writing Intensive), Acting I & II, and Fundamentals of Public Speaking. The students in Professor Morales' classes have the opportunity to be involved in extra-curricular activities such as field trips to the theater, participate in speech competitions, attend acting workshops with theater professionals in New York City, and be selected to participate in the Kennedy Center American College Theater festival held every year at different colleges in the New England region.

He received his B.A. in Communications from the University of the Sacred Heart in Puerto Rico, and his M.A. in Educational Theatre from NYU. He has been a teacher, stage manager, lighting designer, producer and director in Puerto Rico and New York City. Currently, he is the Artistic Director of the Hostos Repertory Company and the Acting Coordinator of the Visual and Performing Arts unit of the Humanities Department. In 2007, he directed the highly acclaimed world premiere of Borinquen vive en El Barrio by Tere Martinez for which he received an ACE (Asociación de Cronistas de Espectáculo) award nomination. The production was also invited to be featured at TeatroStageFest, an international latino theatre festival in New York City in June 2008.
Recently, he directed In The Blood by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks, No Child... by Nilaja Sun, and the US premiere of You Always Forget Something by Virgilio Piñera.

As an educator he has been the recipient of the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) award for Excellence in Teaching, and an active member of the CUNY League of Active Speech Professors (CLASP), and the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE).

Professor Morales is thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to be a member of the Hostos faculty. He believes that if we are not having fun teaching then we are doing something wrong. Getting the students outside the classroom and onto the stage has been the most rewarding teaching experience for him.

Prof. Angel Morales was nominated to the Best Educator of the Year Award because: “Professor Angel Morales works so hard at incorporating theater and the general education principles at Hostos Community College. His theater productions raise awareness of timely topics that our students encounter in their daily lives, and through his productions, he enables students to reflect on their experiences and in some instances, the productions have been a catalyst in changing students' lives and perspectives.

In addition to his theater productions, Professor Morales serves on a number of committees such as the General Education Committee, and he works hard with the Speech Contest and preparing students to enter the CUNY-wide Speech Contest.”

“Professor Iris Mercado is a burst of energy with a huge heart for the students. She gives the students tough love, but at the same time provides them with the support systems to be successful

Professor Mercado's energy and good will has her saying yes to more projects than she should take on, but it is the enthusiasm that enables her to successfully continue with each and every project.

She advises each of them with such thoroughness and passion. Iris has been working on a CUNY Campaign against Diabetes that has been more successful at Hostos than the other CUNY schools.

Professor Mercado has faculty, staff, and students walking around campus wearing pedometers and you can join one of her weekly walking groups to take a brisk walk to Yankee Stadium and back during a lunch hour.

The Take the Stair Campaign is also spearheaded at Hostos by Professor Mercado. A couple of months ago, Professor Mercado collaborated with others on campus to create a weekly weight maintenance group for interested students. Each week the group meets and the focus is on healthy lifestyle choices. The first week, with only two days of advertising, had 35 students in attendance! There is a need for this service. Dr. Mercado has also been working behind the scenes for the past couple of years trying to change the choices in the vending machines and have the cafeteria offer healthier selections. It is a slow process, but some changes have been made. Professor Mercado also has been a Senator since she began at Hostos and is currently a member of the Senate Executive Committee Dr. Mercado is working on a Community College Collaborative Grant with faculty from LaGuardia and Kingsborough, who are interested in beginning adegree program in Community Health. Professor Mercado is in the process of collecting data on the needs of local agencies for community health workers and the skill sets they need. This information will prove essential for our students as they seek employment. Because of her expertise, she has been working with a committee for the new community college. Professor Mercado is highly respected in the field. If you ever observe Dr. Mercado's classes, you will see students on the edge of their seats taking in her every last word. She consistently keeps the students involved through high-level questioning techniques and her passion. Professor Mercado was awarded the Early Childhood Club's Teaching Excellence Award by receiving the most student nominations.

Prof. Mercado is a role model for our students and she is constantly seeking new initiatives to improve the health of the entire campus. Indeed, Professor Mercado is an asset for our students, department, college, and community and these are just a few of her current endeavors.

In 1992, she received a scholarship to the doctoral program in the department of Germanic Languages and Literatures at New York University from where she holds her Ph.D. degree. Her doctoral work on “Discourse Competence as a Reading Skill: The Role of Coherence in Second Language Discourse Comprehension” and her continued teaching engagement in language proficiency, laid the foundation for her primary interests as an educator in academic ESL.

As an instructor in intermediate and advanced ESL/ELA classes at Hostos, she has contributed to curriculum development and program design in interdisciplinary freshman learning communities for both Freshman Academy and the Hostos Success Academy. Her research work involves history of knowledge and the role of multimedia literacy in academic ESL.

This forum was designed to address the issues surrounding a new generation of ELLs such as the 1.5 generation and long-term ELLs. It was a resounding success according to its attendants. Moreover, the forum organizers have created a website that allows attendants to engage in the discussion of issues raised during the forum.

Yoel Rodríguez, Assistant Professor

Yoel Rodríguez Physical Sciences; B.A., Havana University; Ph.D., at the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department of the Faculty of Chemistry

In October 2003, he was awarded a post-doctoral fellowship from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport of the Spanish Government at Mount Sinai School of Medicine (MSSM) in New York. His post-doctoral work focused on the computational design of small-molecule chemical ligands that selectively modulate the biological function of the bromodomain of the human transcriptional coactivator CBP, an important regulator of chromatin-mediated gene transcription and has major implications in cancer biology. The results of these studies have been published in prestigious scientific journals such as Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications, and Proteins: Structure, Functions and Bioinformatics.

During the Fall 2007 semester he joined the Natural Sciences Department of Hostos Community College as an Adjunct Assistant Professor and in the Spring 2008 semester he became an Assistant Professor.

In the words of his nominators Prof. Yoel Rodríguez deserves the Best Educator of the Year Award because: “As an instructor Yoel has dedicated his talent and enthusiasm to revitalize courses that by nature are feared and avoided by most students, and has made them popular courses. I have always marveled at his patience with the large crowds of students that pack his office space. He is a genuine mentor. As a colleague, he is very supportive of ideas and initiatives that are conducted by many of us. His friendly demeanor and his gentle character make him a great colleague, the one we seek for constructive conversations. I do not plan to list each of Yoel's accomplishments, but highlight the qualities that resemble those of Magda Vasillov. As with Magda, Yoel's actions are not driven by personal interest, but by the interest of those around him

He works very hard with students trying to get the best of the students' potential and also showing them respect and friendship, which makes the students see the real talent in their hands. For these reasons I think that this professor deserves the award.”
