Welcome the newest faculty member of Lake Land College, Jarrett Dunn. All the way from Battle Creek, Michigan, Dunn has come to teach Math at our small community college. A self-proclaimed cat lover and new to the teaching world, he’s a charming fellow to meet.
He started his education at a community college himself, before attending a four-year university. However, he did not go into teaching straight from there. He changed paths for a short time and joined the Peace Corps. This would turn out to be a life changing journey for Dunn, as it allowed him to become more cultured and to meet many different kinds of people.
While joining the Peace Corps was a bit of a detour from his career path, it helped him to grow as a person, and later would help him to be a better teacher. Dunn says that community colleges attract people from “all walks of life” and so he is a good fit for our school.
Dunn also says that the students seem very friendly at Lake Land. Coming from a small city, he had no idea what to expect when moving to Mattoon, but he is thankfully enjoying the school’s quiet and rural atmosphere and making new friends quickly.
