Dr. A: The Caring Professor
Dr. Almeida is a college professor who cares and is constantly interacting with students in order to better serve and find the best in them. It isn’t atypical for him to stop in the middle of the hallway and start speaking with students, literally. He takes this approach in order to expose students to his personality outside the classroom, which he believes is one of the most important things students should know in a university — that professors have a life and personality outside the classroom.

Dr. Almeida is one of those professors who enjoy working with students and give them the opportunity to meet the right people so that they can get jobs by the time they graduate. The photography below was taken at the Bradley County Chamber of Commerce after his class worked with the Bradley County Health Council, a non-profit organization sponsored by the governor of Tennessee. Two students represented the class to the Healthier Tennessee Board. The board was very impressed with his student’s work.
