Dr. Kristy Buccieri, associate professor of Sociology
Professor Kristy Buccieri tackles issues that deal with homelessness, social policy, and illness. Employing real-world scenarios and interesting examples to explain complex concepts, Prof. Buccieri inspires her students to think differently as they move through the world and regularly sees the personal impact of her methods when students excitedly make connections to current events. She values the diversity in each of her classes and continues to collaborate with colleagues to undertake innovative avenues to teaching and learning at Trent.
Reflecting on her teaching and learning of her students, Prof. Buccieri says that, “Teaching is always about telling a story and trying to figure out the best way to communicate what you have to teach… I think that there is something to that lighthearted way of learning that helps you to actually take in the information without the fear attached to it or without the heavy burden.”
