What would the students say about me...
Authentic, friendly, respectful, has integrity.
This School is different to all others I have worked at because...
The facilities at NISC are the biggest and most developed in any campus I have ever worked on. The orientation message/theme (caring for students and staff above all else) was apparent and confirmed the vibe I got when I interviewed in January 2016.
