About Mohsen Omar
My name is Mohsen K. Omar; I am a faculty member at the political science department at Northeast Lakeview College. I am so excited to be part of this great mentoring program.
To start, I would like to tell you a little about myself. I started teaching political science with the Alamo Community Colleges 9 years ago. I have a passion for politics and the political process and I do hope to engage students in our political system and to promote a better understanding of how the different levels of Government interact and influence our lives, and become more politically active.
In my opinion, as an educator, the faculty role shifts to coaching and mentoring. A faculty’s role is primarily coaching, mentoring, guiding, and directing learning rather than lecturing and professing. My favorite part about teaching Political Science is assisting students to make connections between politics and how it actually impacts their everyday lives. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, coffee, long-distance running, horseback riding, tennis, and sports.
