Amy Pacheco

Amy has known she wanted to teach social studies in a high-need middle school. Now she has the skills and preparation. “I feel North Central is really focused on equipping students to be teachers. When I come into a new classroom or meet new students, I’m well prepared for what I’ll face.”

Part of that preparation included diverse courses required for her major, from economics and methods to political science, sociology and history. “These have been the most amazing classes in my whole college experience. The program is well rounded and I take what I’ve learned and apply it out in the field with my students.”

Her professors, she says, “are great at getting us to connect how certain events in history still affect us today and to give a voice to people and times not always mentioned.”
