Working for the Nova Scotia Community College has been a great experience in that I’ve been able to meet some great people, teach things that I love and be able to develop my skills as a teacher. Now I’m in Truro at the Truro Campus taking a series of education courses to become a better teacher. While the courses are the main reason for being in Truro (and they’ve been great courses), what is amazing is being able to network and get to know some of the people who make up the college. There are an incredible number of people with diverse backgrounds and skills here. For the most part we talk about teaching…in the morning, at lunch and dinner and after hours. We stay up late into the night and get up early in the morning. They are long days, but I wake up every morning ready to dive back in again.
