Vicki Hodges
Vicki Hodges has served as an adjunct English instructor at NWACC since obtaining her Master's at the University of Arkansas in May of 1999, teaching at various locations in Northwest Arkansas, including Lincoln High School, Har-ber School of Nursing, the Washington County Sheriff's Department, and currently online. With Bachelor's degrees in Spanish and Social Work, Vicki has taught high school Spanish, plus has worked with populations from abused/neglected children to the elderly residents in nursing homes. She maintains her license in Social Work, a degree helpful in her efforts to empower NWACC's developmental writing students in her face-to-face classes. She also works with high school students (low-income, first-generation college students) through Upward Bound at the U of A in the summer and on weekends during the school year. She works as an online academic coach through Instructional Connections, enjoys freelance writing, tutors online, and completes occasional editing projects. Vicki has had a variety of jobs in the fields of teaching and social work, but she feels she has found her niche at NWACC working with students to reach their full potential.

Nese Nemec
I, Professor Denise Nemec, am an Arkansawyer from birth. I came to northwest Arkansas in the late '70s for graduate school at UAF and never left. Here at NWACC, I teach composition and journalism classes, work in the Writing Center, advise the student newspaper, and try to do my part on committees and for students. I began teaching full time in fall 1998 after three semesters of part time work, and it's been an interesting, challenging, and fun journey! I feel blessed to work at a solid school with superior faculty, staff, and administrators. Most folks call me by my nickname Nese, which is pronounced KNEE-see. I am proud to serve as the Communication and Arts Division senator and plan to represent those faculty and any others who ask to the best of my abilities.
Barbara Rademacher
Ed Rogers
