Bring Back Instructor Susan Picillo

Instructor Susan Picillo, an amazing teacher and wonderful contribution to the Northeastern community, was fired last week. As any student who has been taught by Instructor Picillo knows, she is one of the very best teachers at Northeastern. She is tough on her students but makes sure that every student leaves her classrooms with so much more knowledge than they came in with. Although she may not have the degree or publications that are needed for tenure, she is a highly experienced instructor in Public Communication, voice, theatre, and presentation. She is an incredibly hard-working, accessible and truly caring teacher and our campus would lose a very unique and incredible individual if we were to allow her to be fired. She is among the best, and her nomination for the Excellence in Teaching Award in 2005 and 2007 is evidence of that. We need to fight to keep her at Northeastern and show this university that instructors like Susan Picillo are at the heart of what our school really has to offer. Please sign this petition if you want Susan Picillo back at Northeastern and think that she never should have been fired in the first place. We will use this petition to show the administration at Northeastern that we want Picillo back! This is a tremendous loss for our university, let\'s use our student voice! PLEASE USE ONLY YOUR NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY E-MAIL ACCOUNT TO SIGN THIS PETITION...also please DO NOT CHECK THE ANONYMOUS BOX (we can\'t use your signature to show to any decision makers if you do that)!! Thanks!

    5 years ago Comments: hearing this news about the most incredible professor I have ever had, Susan Picillo, is both shocking as well as heartbreaking..the semester before I took my first class with her I was almost certain I would be leaving the school but just when my interest in Northeastern was surely out the door I experienced something that changed me life so much..a professor so inspiring, knowledgeable, with such an incredible teaching strategy..I have never learned more from a professor than I have with Susan..she gave me this incredible sense of being excited to learn, willing to put in all the work, I looked forward to going to her class every day..I could go on about this amazing teacher, this amazing person that inspired me so much..thinking about all she has given me in just one semester is enough to make me cry..Northeastern will suffer a huge loss if Susan is no longer a professor, but no matter where she goes she will continue to inspire, succeed and touch the lives of those around her the way she did for me..I know there are so many people that feel the exact same way..if Susan Picillo no longer teaches at Northeastern there is no way I will continue to attend this school..I truly pray for the sake of the schools success that they will not make this gigantic mistake, for if they do they will suffer in so many ways. This is my honest to god word, from the heart..BRING SUSAN BACK
