In my career, I have been more productive, joyous and excited when I have been part of a tight team.
TEAMWORK: KATE HEEKIN
Kate is the Associate Director of Admissions at Williams College in Williamstown, MA.
Right after graduating from college I became an elementary school teacher. I made sure the emphasis from day one was teamwork. My 3rd and 4th graders were happy kids because they learned quickly they could work through anything because we had built a strong and trusted team. In my career, I have been more productive, joyous and excited when I have been part of a tight team. It’s OK if you prefer to work alone but it is important to practice being part of a team to accomplish things together- it feels so good to celebrate as a group!
