“My students are deserving of the wonderful opportunities that life has to offer, even if they have to demand a seat at the table.”
“Lean into the present and don’t waste time” are tenets of Dr. Tashana Samuel’s proactive philosophy, words by which she lives. A child psychologist specializing in cognitive development, Dr. Samuel holds a Ph.D. from the CUNY Graduate Center, with research experience including a longitudinal study at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital Center under Drs. Catherine Monk and Laraine McDonough. Since becoming Assistant Professor of Psychology at Guttman in 2015, Dr. Samuel is simultaneously teaching Statistics in the First-Year Experience and Introduction to Psychology in the Liberal Arts and Sciences – Humanities and Social Sciences Program of Study; conducting research on “techniques to alleviate academic anxiety in community college students”; publishing the promising findings in an article co-authored with fellow Guttman faculty Dr. Jared Warner; and sharing their pedagogical impact in service of our students. Also involved in expanding psychology course offerings at the College, she is excited to teach Guttman’s upcoming first iteration of Child Psychology.

Cesarino Checo really enjoys helping others, and her experience at Guttman helped her make that realization. She is a second-year Liberal Arts & Sciences – Social Sciences and Humanities track student, and a Student Government Association Senator. Cesarina humbly admits that she holds a 3.9 GPA. During her first year at Guttman, she made her college experience all about academics, but a service-learning requirement in a philosophy class taught by Professor Claire King changed her perspective and made her see that being involved in other ways can affect positive change on a larger scale.
