 Employee of the monthPictured are Vice President for Business Affairs David Patten (left), Foreign Languages Department Chair Deborah Notarianni-Girard, Dean of Learning Resources Ruth Sullivan, President Ray Di Pasquale, Professor Jeanne Mullaney and Vice President for Academic Affairs Greg Lamontagne.

On Wednesday, President Ray Di Pasquale, Vice President Greg Lamontagne and Vice President David Patten presented the April 2014 CCRI Employee of the Month award to Foreign Languages Professor Jeanne Mullaney.

In addition to having taught Spanish and French courses at CCRI's Flanagan and Liston campuses, she serves as assessment coordinator and interim CITLA leader at the Knight Campus while also chairing multiple committees, leading workshops and serving as program chair on the New England Educational Assessment Network Board of Directors.

Among the accolades her colleagues gave were examples of how she works tirelessly and inspires others to do the same; how she challenges students and holds their respect; and how she conveys a positive attitude in all situations. In addition, a nominator provided a personal view of working with her, writing, "Jeanne is a leader at CCRI in regards to innovative teaching and assessment. She continually supports faculty and administrators to make things happen and supports practical solutions that work. I have worked with Jeanne in discussing effective teaching strategies and creating assessment plans, and she has always been very supportive, quick to respond, and willing to put in extra time to help me. She makes time from her busy schedule to discuss and clarify different requirements and options. And she always knows of a resource that might help that she had learned about through her various networks."

She thanked the committee for selecting her as CCRI's Employee of the Month, stating, "I'm honored by the award and delighted by all of the prizes that go with it. I'm tickled when I pull up to my parking space each day wearing my CCRI Employee of the Month pin. I'm pleased to display the certificate in its beautiful presentation in my office, looking forward to the lunch at the 1149 with [Vice President Lamontagne], [Vice President Patten] and [President Di Pasquale], and considering how to spend the cash gift. What a privilege to have been selected and what fun!"

Please join the campus in congratulating Professor Mullaney on a job well done. President Di Pasquale encourages all departments at all campuses to continue nominating faculty and staff who show exemplary individual achievement, contribution and performance in their jobs and other related duties beyond their own offices; who inspire and support the performance and achievement of others; who demonstrate a positive attitude toward work responsibilities, co-workers and students/constituents, serving as a role model for others; and who commit to quality in carrying out job responsibilities and are an asset to CCRI.
