A Day in the Life at McGraw-Hill Education: Meet Our Team
At McGraw-Hill Education, our symbol is a cube: derived from our classic square logo, to reflect our evolution as we support educators in teaching and learning into the digital era. This series of posts is intended to take you behind the cube — directly into our community so you can get a sense of the people who work to create powerful resources for teaching and learning. You’ll find that many of the people you encounter were teachers before they came to work here, and many more consider themselves to be life-long learners. Each has a story, talents, and is a unique, valuable asset to our larger mission to empower teachers and students.
Today, we’d like to introduce you to Crissy Asbury, Field Production Coordinator. Crissy brings a great energy to our team, and her creative problem-solving skills are an invaluable asset. Here’s what she wanted to share with you:
Can you briefly explain your role at McGraw-Hill Education?
I work in Field Design & Production as a coordinator managing incoming design and promo jobs for the sales team.
What does a typical day look like in your job?
For me, each day is filled with an array of different jobs and obstacles. I spend a lot of time problem solving for reps to provide them with the materials they need, often with very little time to accomplish it. Every day is different, one of the many reason I love my job!
What is your favorite memory or project at McGraw-Hill Education so far?
I don’t think I have a favorite project or memory. My favorite part of my job is coming up with solutions to the many challenges that I am faced with and being able to say yes when others have said no.
Think back to your time as a student. What experiences drive you to influence change, improvement, or simply continuation of meaningful learning?
I had a math teacher who said “you don’t have to get the right answer, you just have to try, without trying, you will never get it right”. For some reason that has always stuck with me and helped me remember to always try, I will never know if I can do it if I don’t at least try.
