My experience in the education department at Northwestern was life changing. I was taught by professors who truly cared about me and my classmates and wanted to impact us for Christ. Their examples showed me the impact that a teacher can have. It also taught me to strive for excellence and teach with a passion to love and serve my own students for Christ.
