Our faculty is essential to our students. They do whatever they can to motivate and teach the students all the skills they need in order to prepare them for their future health care careers. Below is a post by Dr. Melissa Maldonado, who is one of our CHCP Online faculty members.

What keeps you motivated? What led you to go back to school? What do you want to accomplish? It is truly essential to know your goals so that you can achieve them. However, staying motivated can be a challenge. We can start to get excited and motivated in starting a new academic career or course, however, there may be times when one goes through a “dry spell” throughout the weeks to come. It is important to find what works for you to keep that motivation alive and strong. It can be from placing post-it notes on your mirror or writing your goals on your “vision board” on your refrigerator. It can be taking a few minutes to look into your children’s eyes and remember that you want to be the example for them to accomplish their goals.

I teach College Mathematics online here at CHCP and it gives me such great joy when my students overcome their struggling stories and experiences with learning math throughout their elementary and high school years then ending my course with a real-life application and understanding the importance of math and gaining a deeper understanding on how it is applied within their career and livelihood. We learn the importance of being an educated consumer to how math is applied throughout the healthcare industry. However, the question you need to ask yourself is not whether you like “math” but how can you overcome your challenges?
