Failure to Communicate

As a student of WCC and an ex-staff member, I have seen appropriate changes. I was a tech in one of the departments. She made it immediately known that techs who have been working at the college for a lengthy time needed to move on. The tech position is there to help students make some extra money while being able to complete their education. Once you have completed you need to move on. There are techs that have been done for years and are still working there. She made it to where these employees moved on and it opened the doors for new students to have this opportunity.
I'm not sure if Dr. Fitzpatrick is the best source. I had him as an instructor and he is very condescending to his students. He is the type of person that has his own view of how things should go, and if it doesn't go his way, he becomes confrontational. Which is what appears to have happened. I'm not saying he doesn't have any validity in his statements, but I have learned to take what he says with a grain of salt. As well, I have kept others from taking his classes because of this.
