Mr. Farrar has been teaching at CCSF since 1991. He states: "Most important to me is challenging students to think about the world, the world of the past and that of the present, in ways that they may never before have; to encourage them to challenge the 'common wisdom',tradition, and orthodoxies of all kinds; to encourage the development of critical and agile minds. The specific context in which this unfolds is the study of the histories and cultures of African, Afro-Caribbean, and African American peoples." Mr. Farrar is a card-carrying member of AFT 2121. He has published "Building Technology and Settlement Planning in a West African Civilization: Precolonial Akan Cities and Towns", Edwin Mellen Press, 1996. In his leisure time, he enjoys: Music: Jazz, Classic R&B, Soul and 60's Rock and Roll; Thoroughly amateur R&B, soul, and rock and roll drumming; searching for other amateur musicians interested in making music-soul, R&B, Rock-with no dreams of fame.

Prof. Gueye has been teaching at CCSF since 2005. But experiences in teaching microeconomics, macroeconomics, statistics, and econometrics both at the undergraduate level and graduate level in Paris, Senegal and the United states extend beyond a decade. Being awarded a Fulbright scholarship led me to live and work in California, at the University of Berkeley as a Research Associate conducting research on capital mobility, international macroeconomics, balance of payments, convergence of monetary and fiscal policies within a monetary union. I travel frequently throughout Europe and Africa. It's fascinating and exciting to be able to compare and contrast different cultures. I hope I will share some of these experiences with you in the classroom. .

A.B., University of California, Berkeley
M.A., San Francisco State University
Ph.D., University of Wisconsin, Madison

Professor Johnson has been a member of the CCSF faculty since 2002.

He states as follows: "I view it as my job to infect students with problems: problems with easy answers to difficult questions; problems with uncritical acceptance of those answers; problems with having so many problems. In a case where the illusion of a cure is worse than the disease, opening students up to our own mutual disease must be worth something, right?"

Professor Johnson is the faculty advisor to the Philosophy Club -- home to, in his opinion, the most consistently well informed and interesting conversations he has ever witnessed on campus.

He has published/presented papers on various topics in philosophy: The Philosophy of Race; the Philosophy of Mind; The Philosophy of Biology; Comparative Ethics (particularly Confucian Ethics); Free Will; Epistemology. My current project is a book on Critical Thinking and rationality more generally (tentatively titled, A Change of Mind). A first draft of some initial chapters along with information on all of his courses can be found at his website: http://ccsfphilosophy.editme.com
.

One of Professor Johnson's extracurricular activities is spending an inordinate amount of time on grandiose theories about completely unimportant phenomena: e.g., why do some foods tend to group together in the way they do and why does it seem there are only about 10 or 12 types of faces in the world. Other than that, he feels that he wastes way too much time on the Internet.

Social Sciences Deparment

I received my MA in US History from San Jose State, 1996, in United States History.
I did most of my coursework in early US history, but wrote my graduate thesis on a strike by Latinas in Watsonville in 1985. In Fall of 2011 I started teaching Immigrants in US History, which was a natural fit with all of my interests and coursework. And I presented my own research on the Watsonville Cannery Strike at the WHA Conference in Denver in 2009.
You can read my conference paper at:
http://www.VoicesLikeYours.com/pdfs/HopeAndFaith.pdf

The Faculty Diversity Project invited me to intern in 2001 and I was very fortunate to be able to turn that opportunity into a full-time position.

What I love best about City College is the diverse and international faculty and student body. I am inspired by someone every day.

My philosophy is to explore all of the different aspects of history in order to answer the big question: What is my purpose on earth? Somewhere in the penumbra of human experience is an answer perhaps that might satisfy but I have yet to completely wrap my mind around it.

My goal: to learn at least one new thing from each student every semester.

The MultiCultural Infusion Project continues to inform my teaching practice and encourages me to keep an open mind to all kinds of different perspectives.

Mentoring students in the Honors program provides a great deal of reward as I watch students dig deeper into their own research.

I also make it a point to attend as many on campus lectures and presentations as possible and encourage students to do the same. Part of the college experience is to listen to and learn from as many different people, experiences, and ideas as possible.

I am also a member of the Organization of American Historians and the Western History Association. I enjoy attending their conferences both for the stimulating presentation of current research and for touring national historic sites.

Besides teaching I enjoy hiking, gardening, reading - of course, and museums - even more "of course" :)

With every class I teach, I will make sure that students understand the fundamentals for developing their natural skills of critical thinking. If students hone their critical thinking skills, then the understanding of philosophical texts (or any argumentative prose) becomes an easier task. If understanding becomes easier, then not only will students do well in my class, but in EVERY class they will take EVER. Furthermore, these critical thinking skills will also carry over into one's everyday life, which will improve one's political and socioeconomic choices drastically.

I will also teach my students how to WRITE critically, which will pay dividends in their academic life as well as their personal lives, too.



I volunteer with SF Environment from time to time.

As a graduate student at SFSU, I had one article published in the academic journal Southwest Philosophical Studies titled "Stroud's Silent Skepticism". I have also participated in a handful of philosophical conferences. Fun stuff. You get to travel AND argue with other philosophers.

I love to read and write--philosophy and fiction, it doesn't matter so long as the prose takes you on a journey. I used to play in rock'n'roll bands. I have toured with these bands all over the US and Europe. Lately, I've been dabbling with standup comedy.

Edward Moreno

Social Sciences Deparment

B.A., University of California, Los Angeles; M.A., San Francisco State University

Mr. Moreno has been a member of the CCSF faculty since 1991.

As a history instructor at CCSF, he is dedicated to teaching students how to appreciate the multi-faceted nature of the historical experience in a critical, analytical, intellectual and academic way. His courses challenge students to utilize historical subject matter to teach themselves how to make the study of history valuable in the present.

In this effort, "my courses follow a methodology of "teaching students to think critically by way of thinking historically" in order to inspire in them how a proper understanding of the historical discipline will develop a liberating thought-process. My courses challenge and develop many important intellectual and academic skills; skills that will prove to be useful and profitable in many endeavors. Some of them include: one's ability to read and write at a sophisticated and college educated level; one's ability to think independently and critically by way of thinking historically; one's ability to listen attentively to complex and controversial issues, thereafter being able to express oneself concerning said issues, verbally as well as in writing, in a responsible, mature and knowledgeable manner; one's ability to engage themselves intellectually and emotionally in many of the important subjects and concerns that are the substance of the human experience."

Douglas V Orr

Social Sciences Deparment

Dr. Douglas Orr received his BA from Columbia University in New York and his MA and Ph.D. from the University of Colorado.

Prof. Orr has been teaching at CCSF since the fall of 2008. Prior to that he was a Professor of Economics at Eastern Washington University and has been teaching Economics since 1982.

Dr. Orr's areas of specialization are Labor economics, Urban and Regional economics and Environmental economics. His area of research for the past ten years has been on pensions and Social Security, and he has published articles in national and international journals. One of those articles, published 9 years ago, predicted that large corporations would start to use bankruptcy as a method to default on their pension promises. Unfortunately, he was correct, and the steel and airline industries have now followed this path.

Since coming to CCSF, Dr. Orr has edited a book on financial markets and contributed three chapters to another book on African Americans in the US economy.

His hobbies include mountaineering, skiing, hiking, bicycling

I am thoroughly committed to teaching at the two-year level. Having spent six years at the community college level as a student, I am sensitive to the diverse student population and the varying degrees of students' needs. What I bring to the classroom arena is an enthusiasm for teaching and participation in the process of developing critical thinking, reading, and writing skills. I expect a great deal of myself and my students. I believe that student and instructor should cultivate a solid working relationship based on reciprocity. I had outstanding faculty mentorship while studying at the two-year level, and I welcome the opportunity to extend the same academic generosity.

I lead a Latin Jazz band in San Francisco, I like to watch documentaries, and I love studying film.
