Best Prof in the US at NTID

The Carnegie Foundation has picked NTID professor as its nationwide professor of the year out of 300 finalists. Todd Pagano is director of the Laboratory Science Technology program. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching working with the Council for Advancement and Support of Education said Pagano is “a leading scholar of science education for deaf students and an advocate in the professional chemistry community for students, scientists and technicians with special needs.” A decade ago, when he first arrived at NTID , Pagano didn’t know sign language — and relied on an interpreter. But he quickly learned ASL in order to be able to better communicate with the students. Pagano is the first RIT faculty member to receive the prestigious award. He is married to Susan Smith Pagano, an assistant professor at RIT’s Thomas H. Gosnell School of Life Science. To read more about Pagano's work, click here.
