An Inspiring Professor

default article imageThere have been many times that a professor has motivated me and been extremely helpful. I am a senior communication major in journalism and public relations. I have enjoyed all the professors I have had the chance to have at Monmouth.

My journey at Monmouth has been great as well as constructive for myself because of my professors. There has been an abundance of helpful professors for me throughout my four years.

One professor of mine stands out among them all because of how helpful he has been to me over the course of this year.

John Morano is a Professor of Journalism here at Monmouth and I have had the pleasure of having him for a couple of my classes. Professor Morano is one of those teachers that you are going to look back and remember for years to come.

All of his inspirational, tough love speeches are ingrained in my brain. Throughout my many class times with Morano, I have learned so much from him.

I learned that if you want something really badly you have to go after it and give it your all. Professor Morano has definitely motivated me to go after what I want after I graduate college.

Professor Morano has influenced me to work harder than I ever have in order to do what it takes to get to where I would like to be. His inspirational lectures have lead me to vigorously search for a summer internship.

When I first had a class with Professor Morano, he described his whole life’s story of his successful career in journalism. I found his backstory so inspirational and it really motivated me to strive harder for my goals in life.

Professor Morano even discussed all of the tough times he had to go through to get to where he is today. Whether Professor Morano was on the job reviewing a film or meeting Hollywood’s celebrities, he has been through a lot and seen it all.

Morano wants his students to succeed and do the best they can. One thing that stands out about Professor Morano, is that he always tries to go the extra mile for his students and engage their learning.

I believe professors should influence their students to become better every day so by the time they graduate they have become the best version of themselves. Good professors, like Professor Morano, are there for their students and help them in and out of the classroom.

I believe that professors are the ones to help get students to achieve their goals as well as challenging their limits.

I can clearly say that there are so many wonderful professors here at Monmouth. A lot of professors have helped me tremendously to become a better student and also to take pride in my work.

John Morano is a professor that wants to see his students move onto bigger and better things.
