Myers responsibilities as a teacher go beyond the walls of the classroom. While it is her mission to ensure that students learn and are able to apply the practical and theoretical skills of journalism, it is equally important to help mold students into engaged citizens, empathetic to the changing dynamics of our society as they practice civility, good ethical conduct and selfless service.
