Top 3 strengths as a mentor:
Working with Dorothy changed the course of my career. Thanks to her experience working with Professor Services and as a professor, she gave me practical information about finding a position and the tools needed. In addition to Dorothy’s vast higher education knowledge, she is a true mentor. She coached me around the fears and unknowns of getting started and empowered me to confidently take the first steps. With a CV and LinkedIn profile prepared by Professor Services and Dorothy’s pep talk, I quickly landed my first adjunct position. Now I regularly teach at multiple schools and check in with Dorothy for ideas on how to balance it all with life and family. I am so grateful for that first mentoring meeting.
Working with Dr. Dorothy Miraglia was an incredible experience. She has the knowledge, insight, and desire to help new and potential professors succeed. Dorothy not only helped me prepare for interviews (which are very different from corporate interviews), but she also mentored me and shared insights into higher ed that helped fast-track my path to success. I would not have enjoyed the successful start to my higher ed teaching career had it not been for Professor Miraglia advice and expertise.
Dorothy is a real gem. When I reached out to The Babb Group for help getting started in the online instruction space she was absolutely amazing. Dorothy guided me through the process, provided actionable steps, and gave me insight into the industry that was out of reach for a new professor. I am so thankful that I reached out to her and I cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking to grow as a professor, academic, and member of the online instruction community.
Dorothy is always prompt and helpful with her communication and will respond to email and other outreach even on a Sunday! She is extremely dedicated to assisting and mentoring her clients and students. She has a very approachable and flexible style and really listens to understand the needs of her clients and students.
Finding the Babb Group and Dorothy has been one of the best happenings in my professional life. I have been able to use her expertise to improve my professional outcomes and position myself in a better competitive space to obtain additional online instruction and consulting work.
