Why did you choose the NC State College of Education?

I come from multiple generations of NC State alumni. And, because of the wonderful education program!

Why did you choose the NC State College of Education?

I chose the NC State College of Education because it is one of the top colleges for education in the country, especially in STEM. While touring the College of Education during high school, I had a chance to meet professors, students and many others. Everyone was so welcoming and excited about all that the college had to offer! This community environment was exactly what I pictured myself being a part of. 

Why did you choose your area of study?

I want to mend the relationship that academic-level students have with mathematics and encourage them to persevere.

What’s your next step? What do you have planned after graduation?

I’m planning on working as an assistant youth activities director at North Ridge Country Club and substituting in my spare time before picking up teaching the following year in Wake County or Carteret County.

How has the College of Education prepared you for that next step?

My mentors [NC Teaching Fellows Director] Crystal Espey and [Associate Teaching Professor] Cyndi Edgington have been the driving factor to my success!

What do you eventually hope to accomplish in your field?

I hope to show each student that they are important and be a supportive member in their education, both in mathematics and outside of it, as so many have done for me. 

Tell us about an experience you had with the College of Education that had the biggest impact on you or your career.

Student teaching was very eye opening for me in understanding the importance in remembering my “why”’ for educating. 

Why did you choose education?

Because, as someone once said: “Kids that are loved at home come to school to learn. Kids that aren’t, come to school to be loved.”

And because of the amazing teachers I’ve had throughout my life that have encouraged me and been there every step of the way.
