My Defining Moment

“Greensboro College's Teacher Education program was the perfect place for me to find myself as an educator. My professors worked diligently to help me craft my skills and philosophies as a future educator. They found my unique strengths and tailored my education to make me better than I believed I could be. These professors were my role models; they inspired me to be the best teacher for my future students, as they were for me.”
