Alyssa Walters

For Alyssa, North Central College’s faculty has a love for education that’s contagious.

“My professors are so passionate about what they do, and that has rubbed off on all of us,” she says.

Under the guidance of her professor, Alyssa joined another student to research the effectiveness of scare tactics within early education. She presented her findings at the Illinois Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.

A speaker at one of Alyssa’s health classes offered her a volunteer coaching position for the girl’s water polo team at Metea Valley High School. She became the team’s junior varsity coach the next year.

Alyssa hopes to become a health and physical education teacher. She says that her decision to minor in health education will attract employers.

“Getting a minor in health makes you more marketable,” she said. “I’m going to help my students be healthy individuals so they can be successful at anything they pursue.”
