Kathy McCord, Ed.D.
Assistant Professor of Education
How long have you been working at Alvernia?
This is my second year as a full time, tenure-track faculty member.
What is your position here at Alvernia?
I have the privilege of being an assistant professor teaching in the Education Department both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
What is your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part of my position is teaching. While this is a favorite aspect, it is also a HUGE responsibility. I am influencing my profession. Thank goodness the education majors continue to ask great questions as they learn about pedagogical strategies. They hope to make a difference, and I know they will.
During your free time what do you enjoy doing?
I love spending time with my family, which naturally includes cooking and trying out new recipes. I love to read though I have a hard time reading fiction. Consequently, I read mostly non-fiction e-books on my Kindle. Then there is that wonderful hobby called shopping.
Where is your favorite place to eat on or off campus?
Mimmo’s is a favorite for its food and atmosphere.
