Rosemarie Pappas has been teaching future nurses at RCTC for 23 years. She also worked for 30 years as a nurse at Mayo and for 20 years did both jobs simultaneously.

As a teacher, she said, she wants to be a mentor and resource to all students in the program and not just when they are in her classes.

For her efforts, she was named an Outstanding Educator of the Year this past year at the school.

A basic belief of Pappas' is that if a student is self-confident and believes they can do well, they will do well.

"I know that when a student believes they can do well they are much more likely to do well," Pappas said. It's nothing magic, she said, it's a physical reaction that a positive outlook releases more dopamine into the body.

This works for everyone, she said, from the child in kindergarten to adulthood.

"A person has to believe to do well," she said. "I'm the one who helps them believe in themselves."

Before every exam, Pappas said, she writes two lines on the board: "I am smart," "I know this information." When doubts arise, she said she tells them they should say these words to themselves. If students believe they can pass the test they are more likely to do so, she said.
