My name is Alex Kocol, I have been working at Glendale College since the summer of 2010 and teaching in the Social Sciences Division since 2013.  The courses I have taught include early and modern U.S. history (HIST117 & 118), American government (PoliSci101 & 106), and contemporary world problems (PoliSci110).  My interests revolve around political history, regionalism, as well as the development of political consciousness and identity. 

Through my teaching, I try to encourage students to empathize with unfamiliar concepts and perspectives. Education, by cultivating curiosity and inquisitiveness, has more than just the power to position students for a successful career: It can help them lead more fulfilling lives.  Glendale College’s focus on student success make it a truly special place and I hope to create an environment in my classes where individuals feel both challenged and welcomed.
