Betty Ciesla, MS, MT (ASCP), SH
As a native Baltimorean, I was educated in private religious schools for my secondary years. I chose to attend college at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science ( now called the University of the Sciences) because of their superior record in training medical technology majors. I attended the St. Joseph's Hospital School of Medical Technology in Baltimore for my final clinical internship year and graduated in 1973. Marriage and children quickly followed, yet employment in the clinical laboratory through many shifts was a steady point in those early years. My career in education started in 1980 on a part time basis when I became a faculty member at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, Department of Medical and Research Technology. At that time it was called the Program in Medical Technology. I developed my teaching skills, adapted to the entirely new world of academics and began to imagine myself with a graduate degree. In 1986, I enrolled in the Professional Writing program at Towson State University and four years later graduated with an MS in Biomedical Communication. Pairing the degrees of medical technology and biomedical communication have empowered me to teach courses in Scientific Communication at three universities, to give national workshops in the subject and to partner with my Maryland colleagues in giving national workshops in Hematology and Coagulation. I joined the faculty of Morgan State University in 1999 and have helped to steer that program to maximum accreditation and rigor. As a member of the American Society of Clinical Pathology through the Associate Member Section, I have served on the Tech Sample Committee, the Educational Programs Committee, and am presently on the Hematology Examination Committee. I have been fortunate to win four teaching awards at University of Maryland and the recipient of a national award Excellent in Education award from the ASCP-Associate Member Section for 2000. I was also awarded the Excellence in Teaching award from Stevenson University, Timonium Md. In 2008. Throughout my academic career, I have chaired recruitment committees, served as a collaborative grant writer, authored chapters in textbooks, written articles and developed educational strategies. In 2007,FA Davis published my textbook Hematology in Practice. I have been blessed with three beautiful and successful daughters and an exceptionally patient husband.
I consider teaching and education a vocation and one in which I am constantly striving to break down barriers and allow students to desire and then to aspire. It is my life's work.
