Why I love teaching:
Imagine working really hard at something, pushing yourself to the limits, not believing that you can go any further. Out of nowhere someone you know gives you the extra push to meet your goal. If you have ever felt this, remember how that feels. Now imagine how your friend felt being your motivation. Your last ounce of strength when you needed it most. As a teacher I enjoy being the person that pushes my students to the next level. I want to give them strength when they feel like they have nothing. This makes me love my job.
Why I chose NCCS:
NCCS is one of the most positive environments that I have ever encountered. The first day I ever set foot on campus I felt as though I was at home. One of the things that resonated with me is that at NCCS, not just the education matters. What matters is the atmosphere, the community, the family, the team. With all of these aspects, education is natural. That was my first experience at NCCS and why I choose and love to work here.
