Faculty Spotlight: Kay Gerken
Department: Office Technology
In high school, Kay Gerken loved her business-skills classes.
“I have always been interested in completing office tasks efficiently,” she said.
Gerken, who earned her bachelor’s at Illinois State University and her master’s at Northern Illinois University, taught full time at two different high schools and as an adjunct at another community college before coming to College of DuPage.
She enjoys teaching in the Office Technology information program and is inspired by a good work ethic and a willingness to learn.
“I have been told I have a knack to break things down from the complex to the simple and I enjoy helping people,” she said. “Students learn at a different rate, and as long as they make progress, they are successful. We don’t all need to progress at the same pace.”
