Creating a community of learners is the foundation of effective teaching. Baker College instructors are passionate about the subjects they teach. This is especially true with the advance placement Lapeer High School students enrolled in the Baker College Dual Enrollment Educational Partnership (DEEP) program.

I have been a mentor to junior and senior Lapeer students enrolled in the College on Campus program since September 2014. The senior students are approaching a soon to be high school graduation and the junior students will have another year before graduation. Both will have accumulated 16 college credits under my tutelage.

The Baker College courses I teach at CFI include EGR105 Introduction to Engineering and Design, ERG171 Computing for Engineers, EET136 Digital Circuits I, and EET216 Digital Circuits II. The nine students enrolled in the College on Campus engineering curriculum have accomplished much during the 2015 school year. These students include; Anthony Cotton, Austin Bozun, Gabriel Castaneda, Matthew Hibbard, Amber Greenley, Matthew Gizinski, Joshua Logan, Austin Mullaney, and John Trombley. When you pass these students in the hallway or on your way to and from classes please congratulate them on their achievements.

If you are interested hearing what they have to say about the Baker College engineering program, please ask for their comments. If you would like to know what courses will be available from Baker College for the 2016 Lapeer School year, please contact me at kburns14@baker.edu.

Best Regards – and good luck with your studies!

Dr. Kenneth F. Burns, DBA
