FROM THE MARICOPA COMMUNITY COLLEGE CAMPUSES
TO YOUR HOME.
THIS IS MARICOPA NOW.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE STORIES YOU'LL SEE.
NAMED A MILITARY FRIENDLY SCHOOL BY GI JOBS
MAGAZINE, RIO SALADO COLLEGE HELPS MILITARY
SERVICE MEMBERS AND VETERANS REACH THEIR
EDUCATIONAL GOALS.
CHANDLER GILBERT COMMUNITY COLLEGE AND INTEL
CORPORATION ENCOURAGE YOUNG LATINAS TO EXPLORE
NONTRADITIONAL CAREERS.
PLUS, AT THE HELP DESK, IN THE LAB, AND EVEN IN THE
ROSE GARDEN.
MEET THESE WORK STUDY STUDENTS.
AND THERE'S SO MUCH MORE ON THIS ADDITION OF
MARICOPA NOW.
NOW, HERE'S YOUR HOST, KIM GOETZ.
WELCOME TO OUR SHOW.
THANKS FOR JOINING US HERE AT MESA COMMUNITY COLLEGE.
IN THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER, WE HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE
SERVED OR ARE SERVING OUR COUNTRY.
FOR RIO SALADO COLLEGE, PROVIDING AFFORDABLE
ON-BASE EDUCATION TO MILITARY PERSONNEL IS ONE
WAY OF GIVING BACK.
MATT LOPER TAKES US TO RIO SALADO COMMUNITY COLLEGE
AT LUKE AIR FORCE BASE.
MANY AIR FORCE PILOTS COME TO LUKE AIR FORCE BASE TO
LEARN HOW TO FLY AIRPLANES, BUT THAT ISN'T
THE ONLY EDUCATION AVAILABLE ON BASE.
RIO SALADO COLLEGE OFFERS CLASSES ON ONE OF THE
LARGEST AIR FORCE TRAINING BASES IN THE WORLD.
GRANTLEY FISHER HAS ONE GOAL IN MIND WHILE HE IS
IN CLASS ON BASE.
WORK MY WAY TOWARDS A DEGREE, YOU KNOW, THAT'S
PART OF THE REASON I JOINED THE MILITARY.
RIO SALADO COLLEGE OFFERS SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN
ONLINE CLASSES THAT THEY CAN CONTINUE EVEN WHEN
THEY ARE DEPLOYED.
ALONG WITH ONLINE CLASSES, MILITARY SERVICE PERSONNEL
AND CIVILIANS CAN ATTEND TRADITIONAL CLASSES ON
BASE AS WELL.
IF YOU NEED HELP, IT'S RIGHT THERE.
DEBBY HILL HAS BEEN TEACHING MATH A LUKE AIR
FORCE BASE FOR 18 YEARS.
I TEACH A VARIETY.
IT RANGES FROM INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA,
INTRODUCTORY ALGEBRA AND COLLEGE ALGEBRA.
SHE LIKES TEACHING MILITARY PERSONNEL BECAUSE
THEY SEEM MORE FOCUSSED.
THE PEOPLE HERE WORK REALLY HARD.
THEY CARE ABOUT WHAT THEY'RE LEARNING.
THEY HAVE GOALS THAT THEY'RE TRYING TO MEET.
FOR DANIEL SHARAYKO A MASTER SERGEANT WHO WORKS
IT ON THE BASE, THIS MATH CLASS IS GOING TO HELP HIM
ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING HE'S PUT OFF FOR A LONG TIME.
I NEEDED ONE CLASS TO FINISH ON, ON A CCAF
DEGREE, ASSOCIATES AND ELECTRONICS SYSTEMS
TECHNOLOGY.
SHARAYKO SAYS THAT HE HAD BEEN DELAYING GOING BACK
TO CLASS BECAUSE OF SOME BAD EXPERIENCES.
I'VE BEEN PUT IT OFF BECAUSE I HAD A FEAR OF
MATH.
FOR MANY MILITARY SERVICE MEMBERS, WORKING TOGETHER
IS CRITICAL IN THE FIELD AND THEY APPLY THAT SAME
APPROACH TO THEIR COURSE WORK.
IT REALLY BECOMES A TEAM THAT'S DOING IT WHERE
YOU'RE NOT IN THIS ALONE.
SHARAYKO SAYS THE CLASSES HELPED HIM FEAR MATH LESS.
IT DID A LOT FOR MY SELF-ESTEEM.
AND NOW, HE IS LOOKING AT GRADUATION.
THIS IS GOING TO BE THE LAST CLASS I NEED AND THEN
I CAN APPLY FOR GRADUATION, I'LL BE DONE.
WITH TEACHERS LIKE DEBBY HILL IN THE CLASSROOM AND
ONLINE, STUDENTS ARE MORE LIKELY TO SUCCEED.
IF I HAVE ANY PROBLEMS I CAN GET AN ANSWER RIGHT
AWAY.
SHE EXPLAINS EVERYTHING REALLY THOROUGHLY AND
MAKES IT EASY.
RIO SALADO COLLEGE PROVIDES THE OPPORTUNITY
TO ANYONE WHO'S LOOKING TO LEARN AND IMPROVE THEIR
SITUATION.
TEACHING STUDENTS THAT WHEN IT COMES TO
EDUCATION, THE SKY IS THE LIMIT.
FOR MARICOPA NOW, I'M MATT LOPER.

RIOSALADO.EDU.
WOMEN ARE UNDER REPRESENTED IN THE FIELDS
OF SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, AND
MATHEMATICS.
RECENTLY, CHANDLER-GILBERT COMMUNITY COLLEGE AND
INTEL CORPORATION TEAMED UP TO ENCOURAGE MORE HIGH
SCHOOL GIRLS TO CHOOSE CAREERS IN THOSE FIELDS.
JESUS HERNANDEZ HAS THE STORY.
THE THEME OF THE 10TH ANNUAL HERMANAS HIGH
SCHOOL CONFERENCE WAS DESIGN YOUR FUTURE.
IT WAS AN EFFORT TO MOTIVATE SEVERAL HUNDRED
YOUNG LATINAS TO ASSES THEIR POTENTIAL, EXPLORE
NEW CAREER OPTIONS, AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO FIND THE
FINANCIAL RESOURCES THEY WILL NEED.
SO THE MORE THAT YOU APPLY, THE BETTER YOU'RE
CHANCE AND EVEN IF YOU APPLY FOR 100 AND YOU GET
ONE, THAT'S LIKE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS THAT YOU GUYS
DON'T HAVE TO PAY.
DESIGN YOUR FUTURE IS REALLY A CALL TO ACTION TO
-- FOR YOUNG WOMEN TO COME AND LEARN ABOUT THEIR
FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES WERE, ESPECIALLY IN SCIENCE,
TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, AND MATH.
THE ONE-DAY HERMANAS CONFERENCE WAS ORGANIZED
BY THE INTEL CORPORATION AND THE CHANDLER GILBERT
COMMUNITY COLLEGE.
THROUGH A SERIOUS OF WORKSHOPS AND MENTORING
SESSIONS, THEY PROMOTED THE VALUE OF AN EDUCATION
IN THE FIELDS OF SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING,
AND MATHEMATICS.
CAREER FIELDS, TRADITIONALLY UNDER
REPRESENTED BY WOMEN.
AMONG LATINOS IN GENERAL THE HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUT
RATE IS VERY HIGH AND WOMEN IN ENGINEERING ARE
VERY RARE AND THEN EVEN MORE RARE ARE LATINA WOMEN
IN ENGINEERING.
SO THAT'S WHY WE TARGET THIS SPECIFIC DEMOGRAPHIC.
I THINK IT'S A GOOD OPPORTUNITY LIKE, TO KNOW
LIKE, WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO FACE WHEN YOU'RE IN THE
OUTSIDE WORLD.
THE 200 STUDENTS WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE
HERMANAS CONFERENCE REPRESENTED NEARLY 20
VALLEY HIGH SCHOOLS.
AMONG THE CREATIVE CHALLENGES THE STUDENTS
TOOK PART IN WAS BUILDING A SHOCK ABSORBING CRAFT TO
PROTECT ASTRONAUTS WHEN THEY LANDED ON MARS.
WHY ARE YOU DOING IT THAT WAY?
THE MATERIALS THAT WERE PROVIDED INCLUDED
MARSHMALLOWS, STRAWS, TAPE, AND SMALL PLASTIC
BAG.
DO YOU WANT IT HIGHER UP THROUGH?
I THINK HIGHER UP WOULD BE BETTER.
SO IT WON'T BE THAT LOW.
IT MAKES YOU LIKE, REALLY OPEN UP YOUR MIND A LOT
MORE AND BE CREATIVE.
YOU HAVE TO REALLY THINK ABOUT WHAT TO DO.
AT FIRST YOU CAN BE LOST AND NOT KNOW WHAT YOU'RE
DOING, BUT WITH A LOT MORE MINDS THERE, IT KIND OF
GAVE YOU A BIGGER IDEA OF WHAT TO DO.
THROUGH THEIR EFFORTS THE ORGANIZERS OF THE HERMANAS
HIGH SCHOOL CONFERENCE HOPE TO PLANT A SEED OF
POSSIBILITIES IN THE MINDS OF THE STUDENTS.
THAT ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE AND THAT THERE ARE MANY
RESOURCES TO HELP THEM CONTINUE THEIR EDUCATION
AND ACHIEVE THEIR PROFESSIONAL GOALS.
FOR MARICOPA NOW, THIS IS JESUS HERNANDEZ.
COMING UP ON MARICOPA NOW, NOT ALL CAMPUS JOBS
INVOLVE WORKING WITH STUDENTS.
THERE ARE ALSO ROSES.
CHUCKWALLAS AND EVEN FROGS TO TEND TO.
STAY WITH US.
GOOD MORNING CLASS, WELCOME TO DRAWING 111.
HEY MARIA, HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW ART CLASSROOM?
IT'S PRETTY AWESOME.
AT GATEWAY COMMUNITY COLLEGE, WE REALIZE THAT
GRADUATION IS ONLY THE BEGINNING.
YOU HAVE A GOAL IN MIND, AND WE ARE WITH YOU EVERY
STEP OF THE WAY TO REACH IT.
WE'LL START YOUR INTERVIEW IN HERE.
YOUR OFFICE IS RIGHT DOWN HERE.
WELCOME TO THE TEAM.
GATEWAY, ALWAYS MOVING FORWARD.
IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE OTHER SIDE OF THE EARTH,
THEN TRAVEL WITH 180 VIEW HERE ON MCTV.
TUNE IN AND TAKE A JOURNEY FROM ARIZONA TO THE
UKRAINE.
COMPARE LIFESTYLES ARCHITECTURE, THE LAND,
AND TRADITIONS WHEN WE LOOK AT EACH CULTURE AND
LEARN ABOUT OUR DIFFERENCES.
180 VIEW IS SEEN ON MCTV COX CABLE CHANNEL 115.
FOR AIR TIMES, GO TO MARICOPA.EDU/MCTV.
WHY DO I TEACH?
IT'S INTRINSIC.
I CAN'T NOT.
I LOVE DOING IT.
I LOVE WATCHING THE STUDENTS GROW.
I WATCH THE CONFIDENCE THAT COMES WITH THAT
GROWTH.
IT'S EXTREMELY REWARDING IN MY LIFE.
THE RUGS YOU SEE BEHIND YOU WERE DONE BY STUDENTS
IN THE INTERIOR DESIGN PROGRAM.
I'M VERY PROUD OF THEM.
WE'VE WORKED WITH WADE CARTER, ONE OF OUR
INDUSTRY PARTNERS AND WE'VE TRIED TO GIVE THEM
REAL LIFE EXPERIENCE IN THE CLASSROOM.
AND THAT REAL LIFE EXPERIENCE ALLOWS THEM TO
SHINE IN A SAFE ENVIRONMENT.
AND THEN WHEN THEY GO ON TO PRACTICE INTERIOR
DESIGN, AGAIN THAT CONFIDENCE IS THERE.
YOU REALIZE THAT 49 MILLION AMERICANS STRUGGLE
WITH HUNGER.
THAT'S 1 OUT OF EVERY 6 AMERICANS.
THESE PEOPLE ARE AROUND US EVERYDAY.
THEY'RE OUR FRIENDS, THEY'RE OUR COWORKERS,
THEIR KIDS GO TO SCHOOL WITH OUR KIDS.
SOMETIMES WE'RE NOT EVEN AWARE THAT THEY'RE
STRUGGLING.
THIS PROBLEM IS CLOSER THAN YOU THINK.
AND SO IS THE SOLUTION.
PLAY A ROLE IN ENDING HUNGER.
VISIT FEEDINGAMERICA.ORG/HUNGER
AND FIND YOUR LOCAL FOOD BANK.
WHAT I LOOK FOR IN AN INSTRUCTOR IS SOMEONE
WHO'S TRULY EXCITED ABOUT WHAT THEY'RE TEACHING.
AN INSTRUCTOR WHO NOT ONLY MOTIVATES US, BUT
CHALLENGES US TO PRODUCE WORK FAR EXCEEDING OUR
EXPECTATIONS.
AND I THINK THE END RESULT WITH THAT IS COMPLETE
PRIDE IN OURSELVES AND OUR WORK.
HERE AT MESA COMMUNITY COLLEGE, WE FOUND SOME
STUDENTS WHO ARE EXCITED TO BE WORKING THEIR WAY
THROUGH COLLEGE.
THROUGH FEDERAL WORK STUDY, A FORM OF FINANCIAL
AID, THEY'RE ABLE TO WORK ON CAMPUS, EARN A
PAYCHECK, AND PREPARE FOR THEIR FUTURE.
FIVE MORNINGS A WEEK YOU CAN FIND JACKIE MCFARLAND
TENDING TO THE ROSE GARDEN AT MESA COMMUNITY COLLEGE.
I WAS NOT LOOKING FOR AN OFFICE JOB WHERE I WAS
SITTING INSIDE.
SO FOR ME, THIS HAS BEEN WONDERFUL.
AFTER 30 YEARS AS A LEGAL SECRETARY, THIS
HORTICULTURE MAJOR IS HOPING TO TAKE HER CAREER
IN A COMPLETELY NEW DIRECTION.
AND GRATEFUL TO BE WORKING HER WAY THROUGH COLLEGE
WITH THIS ON CAMPUS JOB.
HERE, I'M ACTUALLY GETTING TO APPLY THE THINGS THAT I
LEARNED IN CLASS AND IT'S STICKING A WHOLE LOT
BETTER BECAUSE I'M ACTUALLY OUT HERE DOING
IT.
JACKIE IS ONE OF 135 STUDENTS AT MCC EARNING A
PAYCHECK THROUGH WORK STUDY, A FORM OF FINANCIAL
AID.
SO IT'S NOT LIKE A GRANT WHERE THEY GET THE WHOLE
AMOUNT AT ONE TIME AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SEMESTER.
THEY WORK HOURS THROUGHOUT THE SEMESTER AND EARN THAT
MONEY.
SMITH SAYS AT MCC, WORK STUDY STUDENTS ARE
ESSENTIAL.
WHETHER THEY ARE WORKING IN A QUIET CORNER OF THE
ROSE GARDEN, OR ONE OF THE BUSIEST OFFICES ON CAMPUS.
HI, HOW CAN I HELP YOU?
WHILE SUPPORTING THE FULL-TIME STAFF, STUDENTS
GAIN INVALUABLE SKILLS.
THIS SEMESTER I FEEL LIKE I HAVE A REAL LEARNING
EMPHASIS IN COMPUTERS, SO I'M REALLY EXCITED.
IN THE LIFE SCIENCE LAB, WORK STUDY STUDENT DALIA
VALENZUELA LENDS A HAND IN SEVERAL AREAS, BUT HER
FAVORITE PART OF THE DAY INVOLVES WORKING WITH THE
RESIDENT REPTILES.
THIS ONE HERE IN CHUCKIE THE CHUCKWALLA.
HE IS PROBABLY THE NICEST LIZARD YOU WILL EVER MEET.
FINDING SOMETHING IN SCIENCE, DOING A LOT OF
THINGS THAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO AFTER COLLEGE WAS
VERY LUCKY.
THIS JOB HAS CONFIRMED SHE HAS PICKED THE RIGHT
FIELD.
WE'RE TAKING CARE OF THEM.
MAKING SURE THAT THEY'RE HAPPY.
IT'S REWARDING.
THE OTHER REWARDS THAT COME WITH WORK STUDY,
STUDENTS GET TO WORK AROUND THEIR WORK SCHEDULE
AND THE COMMUTE TO CLASS IS NEVER FAR.
FOR MICROBIOLOGY, I WOULD JUST WALK LITERALLY ACROSS
THE HALL.
DEBBY SMITH SAYS, EVEN THOUGH A STUDENT QUALIFIES
FOR FINANCIAL AID, THE HIRING PROCESSES FOR WORK
STUDY JOBS IS VERY COMPETITIVE.
THERE IS MANY MORE STUDENTS WANTING TO WORK
THAN THERE ARE JOBS AVAILABLE.
THOSE WHO DO GET THE OPPORTUNITY APPRECIATE ALL
THAT WORK STUDY HAS TO OFFER.
JUST BEING OUT, BEING ABLE TO SMELL THE ROSES
HONESTLY IT'S JUST SO NICE BEING OUT IN THE FRESH
AIR.
I LOVE IT AND I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE.
I LIKE IT HERE.
I FEEL LIKE A PRETTY IMPORTANT PART OF THE
TEAM.
REPORTING FOR MARICOPA NOW, I'M KIM GOETZ.
FOR SERVICES SPECIALIST DEBBY SMITH SAYS THE FIRST
STEP TO LANDING A WORK STUDY JOB IS TO GET YOUR
FINANCIAL AID OR FASFA FORM IN EARLY.
CURRENT WORK STUDY JOB POSITIONS CAN BE FOUND
ONLINE WITH MCC CAREER SERVICE.
IN TODAY'S WORLD LAYOFFS ARE A FACT OF LIFE.
STRESSFUL?
YES.
END OF THE WORLD?
NO.

FROM HER FIRST FASHION CLASS AT PHOENIX COLLEGE
TO THE GLITZ AND GLAMOUR OF THE RUNWAY.
ONE OF THE MARICOPA COLLEGES OWN IS TAKING THE
WORLD OF FASHION BY STORM.
EVERYDAY I GET UP WITH ALL THESE IDEAS AND I GO WILD.
PHOENIX COLLEGE GRAD NATALIA ACOSTA ALMOST
LITERALLY EATS, BREATHES, AND LIVES THE ONE THING
SHE WANTS TO DO FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE.
IT WOULD BE FASHION.
I JUST REALLY -- I GET LOST INTO THAT WORLD.
SO MUCH SO THAT SHE'S GIVING ARMANI A RUN FOR
HIS MONEY.
HER ENTIRE HOUSE HAS BEEN TRANSFORMED INTO A DESIGN
STUDIO.
WALK THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR AND MANIKINS ARE
WEARING HER GORGEOUS NEW DESIGNS.
TO THE RIGHT IS HER SEWING ROOM WHERE HER CONCEPTS
ENTER AND LEAVE WITH REALITY.
THIS ROOM IS FULL OF PRINCESS STYLE BALL GOWNS.
WHERE MODELS ARE BEING FITTED FOR FAMOUS FASHION
SHOWS SHE'S APART OF.
AND SHE'S ONE OF THE DESIGNERS YOU'LL WANT TO
WATCH OUT FOR.
SHE'S SO COOL, SHE'S ACTUALLY LETTING ME WEAR
ONE OF HER DRESSES TONIGHT.
IN FACT, IN JUST A LITTLE BIT, MODELS WILL BE WAKING
THE CATWALK, SHOWING OFF HER NEW COLLECTION.
IT'S ALL PART OF THE GLAMOROUS PHOENIX FASHION
WEEK 2012.
THIS PRESTIGIOUS ANNUAL EVENT PROCLAIMS NATALIA TO
BE ONE OF 12 EMERGING DESIGNERS.
WHO ARE WE HERE TO SEE TONIGHT?
NATALIA ACOSTA.
NATALIA ACOSTA.
NATALIA ACOSTA IS THE BEST.
NATALIA ACOSTA IS REPRESENTING PHOENIX
COLLEGE IN SUCH A BIG EVENT.
NATALIA CONSIDERS IT AN INCREDIBLE HONOR.
IN PHOENIX YOU WOULDN'T THINK YOU'D HAVE A COUTURE
DESIGNER, BUT NATALIA IS THAT COUTURE DESIGNER FOR
PHOENIX FASHION WEEK.
HER PASSION COMES FROM HER LOVE OF ART, CULTURE, AND
EDUCATION.
PHOENIX COLLEGE HELPED ME SO MUCH IN A VERY
PROFESSIONAL WAY BECAUSE THEY TEACH YOU EVERYTHING
FROM TOP TO BOTTOM.
YOU CAN SAY THAT PHOENIX COLLEGE CAN BE REPRESENTED
EVERYWHERE, EVEN LOCAL EVENTS, NATIONAL EVENTS,
AND EVEN INTERNATIONAL EVENTS.
HER ONE OF A KIND GOWNS SEWN FROM ALL KINDS OF
MATERIALS HAVE GRACED THE RUNWAY IN YEARS PAST.
SHE WAS A FINALIST FOR DESIGNER OF THE YEAR AT
SCOTTSDALE FASHION WEEK.
A FORMER MISS ARIZONA WON HER TITLE WEARING ONE OF
NATALIA'S GOWNS.
SHE SAYS, SUCCESS DOES NOT COME EASY.
IT'S SO COMPETITIVE AND, YOU KNOW, AND YOU HAVE TO
HAVE THE PASSIONS FOR IT TOO, BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T
HAVE THAT PASSION OR YOU HAVE A QUICK MIND I WOULD
SAY, YOU KNOW, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO MAKE IT.
AND YOU HAD YOUR MOMENT TONIGHT, SUM IT UP.
OH, MY GOD IT WAS AMAZING.
THIS IS, YOU KNOW, THE DREAM COME TRUE.
I SEE ALL MY GOWNS ON THE RUNWAY AND THEY LOOK
AMAZING, AMAZING.
AMAZING IS THE WORD LIKE HOW SHE LOOKS AS WELL AS.
OH YEAH, SHE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.

MY FRIEND AND SHE'S LOOKING FABULOUS.
FABULOUS AND WHERE CAN PEOPLE GET YOUR DESIGNS?
THEY CAN GET IT AT WWW.ITALIAROCKSCOUTURE.COM
AND YOU CAN BUY ALL THE DRESSES RIGHT THERE IN MY
WEBSITE, YES.
YOU HEARD HER, SO BUY ALL THE DRESSES!
I'M LIKE LISA ACQUAFREDDA AND THAT'S LISA'S
FEATURES.
EACH YEAR ABOUT 100 INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
STUDY AT SCOTTSDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE.
THIS YEAR, ONE STUDENT CAME ALL THE WAY FROM
MOSCOW RUSSIA.
NADIA PETRICK INTRODUCES US TO THIS STUDENT WHO
SHARES HER FIRST IMPRESSIONS ABOUT LIFE IN
THE UNITED STATES.
THE FIRST TIME MCTV MET ANASTASIA WAS IN RUSSIA IN
THE STREETS OF MOSCOW.
THAT'S WHEN WE LEARNED ABOUT HER DESIRE TO STUDY
IN AMERICA.
AFTER GRADUATING FROM ADVERTISING PROGRAM IN
COLLEGE IN MOSCOW, I'M HOPING TO ENTER AN
AMERICAN COLLEGE.
I WANT TO WORK IN FILM EDITING.
SO I THINK THAT STUDYING IN AMERICA, WHICH IS THE
HEART OF MOVIE INDUSTRY, WILL ME GET A GREAT
EDUCATION AND MAKE A SUCCESSFUL CAREER.
OUR NEXT MEETING WAS ALMOST A YEAR LATER IN
SCOTTSDALE ARIZONA WHERE ANASTASIA WAS ALREADY A
STUDENT AT THE SCC FILM SCHOOL.
AND LIKE MANY OTHER INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS,
ANASTASIA'S FIST SEVERAL WEEKS IN AMERICA WERE FULL
OF DIFFICULTIES AND ADJUSTMENTS.
WELL THE FIRST THING I'VE GOT TO ADJUST THE TO THIS
LIKE TO THE WEATHER, TO THE PEOPLE BECAUSE I
DIDN'T RECOGNIZE -- I'M NOT USED TO TALK OR
SPEAKING ENGLISH, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE IT'S NOT MY
LIKE NATIVE LANGUAGE.
AND I CAME HERE FRUSTRATED IT WAS LIKE, OH MY GOSH I
DON'T UNDERSTAND A SINGLE THING.
THEN RIGHT NOW I'M JUST LIKE OKAY.
SCC HAS SPECIAL ADVISORS WHO HELP
INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS SMOOTHLY TRANSITION INTO
THE AMERICAN LIFESTYLE AND CULTURE.
IMPORTANTLY THESE ADVISORS UNDERSTAND STUDENTS
CHALLENGES BECAUSE THEY HAVE EXPERIENCED STUDYING
ABOARD THEMSELVES.
WE UNDERSTAND WHAT INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
THAT COME HERE TO STUDY ARE GOING THROUGH.
THE PROCESS THAT THEY'RE HAVING TO ENDURE.
THE HELP PROVIDED TO INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
ALLOWS THEM TO FOCUS THEIR ATTENTION ON SCHOOL WORK.
WE WILL MEET WITH THEM BEFORE CLASSES EVEN START
AND KIND OF GO THROUGH WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE
AMERICAN CLASSROOM.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH CULTURE.
HOW THAT YOU CAN GET TO KNOW THE STUDENTS IN ON
YOUR CLASSROOM.
HOW TO -- WHERE DO YOU NEED TO GO TO SET UP A
BANK ACCOUNT.
HOW TO RIDE THE BUS.
THINGS OF THAT NATURE.
I WAS PRETTY SURPRISED BY HOW THEY ARE WILLING TO
HELP YOU BECAUSE EVEN YOU HAVE SOME SMALL QUESTIONS
LIKE, I DON'T KNOW HOW TO USE THIS CAR FOR EXAMPLE.
MY BUS PASS, HOW CAN I USE IT.
THEY CAN TELL YOU EVERYTHING.
SOMETHING AS EASY AS CATCHING A BUS CAN PROVE
TO BE A CHALLENGE AND A CULTURE SHOCK.
RIGHT NOW, THE HARDEST THING FOR ME IS
TRANSPORTATION BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE A CAR, I DON'T
HAVE A BICYCLE SO FAR.
SO IF YOU CHOOSE TO DRIVE SOMEWHERE BY BUS, THIS IS
LIKE OH MY GOSH.
YOU NEED TO WAIT FOR THIS FOR ONE HOUR OR JUST, YOU
KNOW, PLAN YOUR TRIP FROM EVERY MINUTE.
AND THIS IS HARD FOR ME BECAUSE I GOT USED TO
ANOTHER TRANSPORTATION BACK IN MOSCOW.
TO HELP STUDENTS, A SPECIAL CITY BUS PASS IS
AVAILABLE FOR ONLY $80 PER SEMESTER.
THERE IS A WEBSITE WHERE STUDENTS CAN CHECK
SCHEDULES AND WHETHER THE BUS IS RUNNING ON TIME.
WHICH MAKES GETTING TO PLACES MUCH EASIER.
ANOTHER CHALLENGE INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
FACE IS FINDING AFFORDABLE LIVING QUARTERS CLOSE TO
SCHOOL.
IT'S REALLY HARD BECAUSE IN RUSSIA WHEN YOU COME TO
APARTMENT AND YOU LIKE IT IT'S LIKE, YEAH I WANT IT.
AND THIS APARTMENT IS YOUR'S.
HERE, BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER, I
DON'T HAVE CREDIT HISTORY I NEED TO GO TO BANK.
I NEED TO HAVE A HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY SO THEY
WILL BE SURE THAT I WILL HAVE MONEY TO PAY FOR THIS
APARTMENT.
IT'S HARD, BUT YOU CAN DO IT.
ONCE ALL THE PAPER WORK IS DONE, STUDENTS HAVE A SAFE
PLACE TO STUDY, RELAX, AND HAVE FUN.
LIVING HALFWAY AROUND THE WORLD FROM THEIR PARENTS,
ALSO ALLOWS THEM TO FINALLY DECORATE THEIR
APARTMENTS ACCORDING TO THEIR OWN UNIQUE TASTES.
BESIDES SOME CHALLENGES THAT WERE OVERCOME WITH
THE HELP OF NEW FRIENDS, ANASTASIA'S SETTLEMENT IN
AMERICA WAS FULL OF PLEASANT SURPRISES AND
GREAT FIRST IMPRESSIONS.
SO I THINK MY FAVORITE PART OF AMERICA SO FAR ARE
PEOPLE BECAUSE EVERYBODY IS SO WILLING TO HELP.
EVERYBODY -- EVERY TIME SAY HELLO.
EVEN IN BUS, BUS DRIVER WILL SAY GOOD MORNING.
EVERYBODY IS SO SMILEY AND HAVING A GOOD TIME.
SO EVEN IF YOU HAVE A BAD MOOD OR GOING TO CAMPUS
YOU SEE ALL THESE PEOPLE AND ARE LIKE OH, OKAY.
WHATEVER HAPPENS, EVERYTHING'S GOING TO BE
GREAT.
MARICOPA NOW WILL FOLLOW UP WITH ANASTASIA TO LEARN
MORE ABOUT HER ADVENTURES AND EXPERIENCES IN
AMERICA.
WATCH FOR UP COMING EPISODES.
DANCE STUDENTS AT SCOTTSDALE COMMUNITY
COLLEGE HAVE A WONDERFUL MENTOR IN ANGELA
ROSENKRANS.
SHE WAS NAMED THE CHARROS TEACHER OF THE YEAR AT
SCC.
DEE ANN KINCAID INTRODUCES US TO THIS AMAZING
INSTRUCTOR.
NOT ALL TEACHERS COME TO CLASS BAREFOOT, BUT FOR
ANGELA ROSENKRANS, DANCE DIRECTOR AT SCOTTSDALE
COMMUNITY COLLEGE, IT'S JUST PART OF THE JOB.
SHE WAS NAMED TEACHER OF THE YEAR FOR SCC BY THE
CHARRO FOUNDATION, A NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION
WORKING TO STRENGTHEN THE QUALITY OF EDUCATION IN
OUR COMMUNITY.
ANGELA REALLY DOES DO IT ALL.
SHE TEACHES MODERN DANCE, BALLET, DANCE PRODUCTION,
AND CHOREOGRAPHY AND IS THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF 2
OF THE 3 COMPANIES IN RESIDENCE AT SCC.
BUT HER STUDENTS SEE HER AS MUCH MORE.
I NEVER WANTED TO BE A DANCER.
I WAS JUST DANCING TO KIND OF STAY IN SHAPE AND I MET
ANGIE AND SHE GOT AHOLD OF ME AND IT'S BEEN DANCE
EVER SINCE.
ANGELA'S ENTHUSIASM HAS A POWERFUL EFFECT ON NEW
STUDENTS.
AFTER MEETING ANGIE FOR THE FIRST TIME, I ALREADY
KNEW I HAD FOUND A DANCE HOME.
IT CREATES FREEDOM IN THE CLASSROOM TO REALLY LEARN
AND EXPRESS AND BE YOURSELF WHICH IS AMAZING
AS A DANCER TO FEEL THAT FREEDOM TO MAKE A MISTAKE.
WE HAVE A LOT OF DANCERS THAT COME IN, THAT HAVE
NEVER REALLY DANCED BEFORE AND THEY TAKE ONE CLASS
AND THEY GO, I WANT TO DO THIS FOR MY LIFE.
I WANT TO BE A DANCE MAJOR.
WE OFFER BALLET, MODERN, JAZZ, TAP, HIP HOP, SOCIAL
DANCE, ROLE DANCE, AND VARIETY OF LECTURE
COURSES.
ANGELA REMINDS US THAT THE GREAT THING ABOUT
COMMUNITY COLLEGE IS THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A
DANCE MAJOR TO TAKE A CLASS.
WE REALLY HAVE AN ARRAY OF STYLES AND LEVELS THAT
KIND OF FITS EVERYONE'S NEEDS AND EVERYONE'S
DIRECTIONS.
AND ITS JUST SO INSPIRING TO SEE HER IN CLASS, YOU
KNOW.
SHE WOULD SHOW US HOW TO DO AN EXERCISE AND WE
WOULD JUST GO, ANGIE!
WE WOULD JUST -- IT'S JUST -- SHE TAKES OUR BREATH
AWAY.
SHE'S JUST A BRILLIANT AND INSPIRING DANCER.
BUT ANGELA BRINGS MUCH MORE TO HER STUDENTS THAN
JUST DANCE TECHNIQUE.
SHE'S VERY PATIENT FOR ONE THING.
SHE'S SO THOUGHTFUL.
ANY EMOTIONAL ISSUES, SHE'S ALWAYS BEEN THERE
FOR ME.
SHE'S A MENTOR.
I MEAN WE CALL HER ANGIE MAMA BECAUSE SHE'S JUST
SUCH A MOTHER TO ALL OF US.
THESE QUALITIES HELP MAKE HER TEACHER OF THE YEAR.
I CARRY THE WEIGHT OF THIS PROGRAM AND I'M GOING TO
GET TEARY.
AND OF MY STUDENTS LIVES, THAT I AM -- I AM THEIR
MENTOR TO HELP THEM INTO THE NEXT LEVEL.
AFTER LEAVING SCOTTSDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE I
REALIZED HOW MUCH OF A THERAPY IT'S BEEN FOR ME
AND HOW MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE THAT ANGELA AND
OTHER TEACHERS HAVE MADE IN MY LIFE.
ANGELA PROVIDES TIRELESS DEDICATION TO THE
PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT OF HER
STUDENTS.
I NEVER TRULY GO HOME, BECAUSE I CONSTANTLY HAVE
THEM IN MY HEART AND ON MY MIND OF WHAT I COULD BE
DOING BETTER FOR THEM.
IF YOU WANT TO GO THE PROFESSIONAL ROUTE.
IF YOU WANT TO GO THE TEACHING ROUTE.
IF YOU JUST WANT TO DANCE AND HAVE THE BEST TIME IN
THE WORLD, COME HERE.
WE CONGRATULATE ANGELA ROSENKRANS ON BEING NAMED
TEACHER OF THE YEAR AT SCOTTSDALE COMMUNITY
COLLEGE.
