A professor of history and educator for 36 years, Dr. Sarah Malino concluded her career at Guilford College in Greensboro, N.C. Passionate about her country’s heritage, she demonstrates an expertise in 19th century history, with a specialization in the history of race, class, gender and ethnicity in the United States. She also maintained significant interest in economic and business history, labor history, gender history, and foreign policy. “Teaching is a highly labor-intensive, intellectually and physically demanding labor of love. One must enjoy interaction with students and take pleasure in their progress, and be willing to work closely with them to assist them in taking their next intellectual steps,” Dr. Malino says. She also adds that she became involved in her profession through her first job after college, which was teaching history and philosophy in a small private high school in New York. Realizing that many teachers spent too much time disciplining and not going into sufficient depth regarding subject matter, Dr. Malino made it her professional goal to educate students on the need to conceptualize the multiple narratives of U.S. history in order to fully understand their impact and significance in the world today.
