Lindsay (3)

Lindsay Riegel

Retention Coordinator

I am so excited to have the job of Retention Coordinator because I have spent my career trying to help students succeed. Be prepared to hear from me throughout the semester if I am your success coach.  I can be persistent and sometimes persnickety, but you will never doubt that I want you to do well! Please stop by BH 189 if you need anything!

When I’m not working, I like to bake, read and watch Dr. Who. I love playing the piano and musical theater. Before I came to ECC, I was a high school English teacher for over a decade. I love helping people with grammar. I am basically a big nerd. My kids keep me busy by asking one million questions a day, so never be shy about asking your questions.  I am also a proud ECC alum!

Learning Center Specialist, Access Services

I can usually be found in the Adaptive Tech Lab (BH 187 -back of The Learning Center) where I support students with disabilities use technology to be successful in their course work. I enjoy helping students find a way to achieve their goal(s), both long and short term.

I am an ECC alumni. I have been married to my husband for 25+ years, with 2 sons and a beagle, Louie. I enjoy eating out (mainly sweets), watching movies, relaxing in the warm sun, and going to the beach where I hope to retire someday.

Learning Center Specialist, Math & Physics

I have worked for East Central College for four years as an AEL instructor and Learning Center Specialist. I tutor maths and physics. I enjoy music of all kinds and tabletop gaming. I like to read, but struggle to sit still long enough to really get into a book. My philosophy in life is to always keep learning, otherwise, life is stagnant. I have worked with students for ten years as a tutor, mentor, and instructor.
