New Faculty Faces
Throughout the month of September, Inside Stephens is profiling Stephens' three new full-time faculty members. This week, we profle Joshua Nichol-Caddy in the Film and Media department, who just helped the Stephens Life staff publish its first issue of the year. (Pick up your copy around campus today!)
Name: Joshua (Josh) Nichol-Caddy
Department: Film and Media
Title: Stephens Life Adviser, Multimedia Instructor
Courses I teach: Beginning and Advanced News Writing and Production; Creating Online Media
Favorite part about teaching: Every class period provides new and different challenges. I learn so much from my students.
Reason I chose to teach at Stephens: I instantly felt at ease among its faculty, administration and students.
I hope to teach every student: You can overcome anything with patience, persistence and a good sense of humor.
The last book I read/am reading: Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin
Summer activities: I reported at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, living it up in the big city by dining out, taking in Cardinals' games and seeing bands and movies at the city's parks.
Previous teaching experience/employment: Teaching Assistant at Missouri School of Journalism; English-language tutor
Community involvement: I donate blood at the Red Cross every 56 days.
Hobbies: I enjoy illustrating, animating and watching Nebraska Cornhuskers football games. I also enjoy yoga.
Favorite place in Columbia: The Big Tree
Most people don't know: If I had a mutant power, it would be that I am uncommonly good at catching things mid-air.
