Name: Dr. Sarah Carrier
Graduation Year:
 Faculty Member, College of Education

Why did you enter the field of education?
I entered the field of education to share my love of science with young children. Children’s natural curiosity and excitement for learning about the natural world begins before they enter school. It is important to build on children’s excitement for learning and engagement science early and continue nurturing it each and every school day and beyond.

I am a proud faculty of NC State.
