Why I Chose the Teaching Fellows at NC State

“Just as how attending the N.C. School of Sciences and Mathematics allowed me to make friends and experiences that continue to help me in my life and goals, I believe that the vibrant community of Teaching Fellows will do the same. Being able to talk to others who share a genuine enthusiasm for knowledge and learning has been amazing, and having access to an even greater body of resources and experience is invaluable in learning.” — Nicholas Schankl, Sophomore in STEM education and a Teaching Fellow at NC State
