“I love being a part of Lewis & Clark because it provides students the ability to try out career interests and lay the foundation for a solid career. As the ECC instructor, I am afforded the opportunity to teach, guide, and observe high school students in a career working with children. I feel that all of my work in the education field has landed me in the place I was meant to be so I can have a small part in helping to inspire tomorrow’s teachers!”
