From College Student to College Instructor

Tracy Wall began her studies at the College of New Caledonia in 1997 with the goal to upgrade her education in order to attend university.  She had been out of school for 20 years and had not taken Math or Science past grade 10.

At CNC she took several courses over two semesters and then stayed at the college for two years taking Math and Science courses before going on to UNBC to complete her degree. In 2004, she graduated from UNBC with a Joint Mathematics and Chemistry Degree. And then in 2011, Tracy graduated from UNBC again, but this time with a Masters Degree in Mathematics.

During the course of her studies at CNC, Tracy decided she wanted to teach mathematics and was fortunate to begin working part time at CNC teaching math courses in 2006.  For the last six years, she has been a full-time faculty member in the Mathematics Department at CNC.

The College & Career Preparation (CCP) program at CNC played a major role in her successful educational journey.  It not only gave Tracy the education she needed to continue pursuing her goal, it also gave her the confidence  to realize it was attainable.

At the time Tracy began the program, she was working in a low paying job and was looking to train for a career that would be much more rewarding.  Thanks to CNC and the CCP program she found it.
