Nancy Hottinger received her Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education, English in 1964 from Pfeiffer College, Misenheimer, North Carolina. Nine of her 19 years of teaching have been at Aviano High School, in northern Italy, where she teaches English, Honors English, Journalism, Social Studies, and Reading. Nancy believes that good teaching begins with classroom management and establishing a cooperative atmosphere in which learning will thrive. Nancy also feels that basic teacher honesty is imperative for student achievement. "If a teacher hypocritically demands perfection from students, all the while exhibiting laziness and lack of preparation, the young people will not be fooled. In fact, they will lose their essential respect for the teacher and the learning mission will be compromised."
