|Nancy Street came to Texas A&M University in the fall of 1989 as an assistant lecturer in the Department of Communication. She was promoted most recently to the rank of Instructional Full Professor in the fall of 2009. The charge for Academic and Professional Track faculty is to teach and serve. This is a perfect track for her as teaching and service are her passions. She has taught fifteen different courses ranging from Health Communication to Leadership and Conflict Management. She holds a College Level Distinguished Service Award for Teaching from the Association of Former Students as well as the Presidential Award for Academic Advising. During her tenure, she served for 13 years as the Course Director for the Basic Course, supervising the teaching of hundreds of graduate student teachers and the learning of thousands of undergraduate students. She continues to supervise other courses in the Department. Currently Professor Street serves as the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Her advising and supervision philosophy is “tell me your dream and then let’s make a plan!” Additionally, she is an avid proponent of experiential teaching methods. Her teaching philosophy is “reach out, feel, experience, see!” A student acting on the material that is presented is what adds the stickiness, and engagement leads to participation. The result is learning. Additionally, Nancy Street has served on dozens of committees and held leadership roles that benefit students, advisors and faculty across the university.
