Students have stopped asking for directions, the parking lots are a bit safer (read as “not quite as dangerously chaotic”), we have heard messaging from the iTeam (interim admin!), and faculty are digging into content in their classrooms. That’s right, the excitement of another new academic year is settling down, and the real work of the semester is now underway.
Along with new students, GCC is pleased to have gained 11 new Residential Faculty and 10 new One-Year-Only/One-Semester-Only Faculty this year. Representing a wide range of disciplines, teaching experiences and geography, our new colleagues are working hard to adjust to their new roles. Some are veterans of the district, some have been at GCC for years, some are new to teaching for the community college, and some have moved to Phoenix from different parts of Arizona and the country.
So please, if you get the chance, give a warm welcome to our new colleagues!
