I moved to Richmond County about 3 years ago. I had been working the NC Army National Guard full-time. For the first year I stayed at home with my 4 year old daughter. Once she started school, I decided to go back to school myself. I originally went to Richmond Community College to get Substitute Teacher training in the Continuing Education Program. Then I decided that I wanted to take more classes, but I didn’t know what career field to pursue. The staff at RCC advised and mentored me. Ms. Sheri Dunn-Ramsay taught me my first education class. Through her teaching of Early Childhood Education, I figured out what I wanted to pursue as my new career.
I am currently in the Early Childhood Education program. The Education Department has an excellent staff. Each of my teachers Ms. Johnson, Ms. Dunn-Ramsay and Ms. Regan has really got to know me and through their passion for teaching, I have realized that I also have that same passion for teaching. I work for the Richmond County School system and with the knowledge I have gained from RCC I feel like that I am a better Substitute Teacher. I plan on continuing my education to a four year college and get my Bachelor Degree in teaching. RCC is helping me pave my way to success.
