NNU has prepared me for my future job as a teacher by giving me a really well-rounded education. I’ve gotten a ton of field experience and student teaching, and being a student-athlete here has taught me how to communicate and be a part of a team. I think that this education has equipped me to just be a well-rounded person and not just a student.
