Introducing our VIF Teacher: Ms. Grossett
My name is Sheneca Grossett. I was born and raised on the beautiful Island of Jamaica in a middle sized family of eight. Growing up in Jamaica was a quite memorable experience as I recall vividly a fun-filled childhood, eating traditional foods, traveling across the Island to visit friends and family.
I took the first “step” in my educational journey at the early childhood level and later progressed successfully through three other educational levels, primary, secondary and tertiary respectively. In an educational-related life history, my decision to become a teacher and more specifically a primary-ed teacher, developed from the early years of my educational experiences in primary school to the present, at the doorstep to a new, professional career in teaching. I graduated from Sam Sharpe Teacher’s College with a Diploma in Teaching and later earned a Bachelor in Education from the International University of the Caribbean. I started by teaching career at the Cacoon Castle Primary School in the rural area of Hanover, Jamaica. This afforded me the opportunity to work with children from low socio-economic background in the most rewarding profession for the past six years and watching them grow academically. I had the privilege of teaching at all the grade levels, first through sixth respectively. Driven by passion for teaching and the desire to perfect my craft, I applied to the VIF Programme. This afforded me the opportunity to have a first-hand experience in an American Classroom, improve and refine my teaching techniques and also facilitate further opportunities to infuse my culture in the curriculum. I look forward to an enriching, rewarding experience at Rock Rest Elementary and continued support in learning best practices, perfecting my craft and further expanding my life experiences and personal growth.
