Melissa "Mel" Favara, M.A.
I hail from Saginaw, MI, and moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1996; I live in north Portland with my family and two 100-pound dogs.
I've been teaching English at Clark since 2007 and have been the Penguin Alert for Student Success (PASS) Faculty Liaison since 2009. I love collaborating with faculty in teaching learning communities and in striving for student retention.
You can find me in my off time reading or birdwatching!
