Grenada Mission – In the Eyes of a Faculty Member

Grenada Project 2013

When I was selected to be part of a great adventure to Grenada with a team of great Ambassadors, my bags were mentally packed and ready to go.
The trip required assisting and working closely with T.A MARRY SHOW COMMUNITY COLLEGE (TAMCC) Staff, Faculty, Students and Shareholders at every level. Future possible NSCC candidates, take note, one day this may be for you.
To be part of such a dynamic team, you actively participate in promoting an international mandate. For example, TAMCC requests all involved to work together to achieve the mandate utilizing each area of expertise.

I, for one, brought my marketing speciality in entrepreneurship to the work group. My colleagues, Christine Jacobson our expert in the world of Curriculum; Katy Orr, NSCC International Director and Manager NSCC International Zoran Kondali, partnered as the backbone of the mission.
Both colleges were like one big family, always stepping up to the plate with 100% participation from each and every representative.

For me, such involvement with NSCC International provides a broader view on educational issues with diverse cultural richness. The open-mindedness leads to a broader perspective, more aware of the multi-facets of educational requirements. I also like to think that I can share that influence with my colleagues and motivate them to actively participate in our international activities.

For those that may be entertaining the possibility of engaging in these worthy events, to expand upon your continuous learning, I urge you to look at the NSCC International Website. It’s contagious....be careful, you may also catch the bug. It’s inspirational, and there’s plenty of support. If you love what you do, what are your waiting for? We work in an environment that is interactive, with many great role models.

Although CCEDP will always be a highlight in my professional life and the Great Teacher’s Seminar was second to none. Oh, then there was also Vietnam, and there I was in with our counterparts in Grenada. What a journey in my portfolio, both are instrumental in my learning development. I thought, I shared, I expanded my educational experience. I have a very large family within NSCC that expands globally. I start each morning with passion and anticipation of what the day will hold, knowing that I have an incredible employer that inspires me to reach further and share with our college.
