Kate Curry, NCC Faculty

After having her children, Kate Curry was given the opportunity to teach at the college level, and she wanted to help create the best teachers coming out of the Early Childhood program. Kate says that the experiences NCC professors provide their students are in real-time working with children. They spend time in the community to learn about the resources available to communities and families for their children. Kate wants prospective students to know that at NCC, in this program, you are an active learner so you can be an active teacher.

Students have the opportunity to teach as a lead teacher at a childcare center or prepare to enter a four-year institution to complete their Early Childhood journey, Kate says. "The most rewarding part of my job is my students. Every day my students teach me something I didn't already know. Sharing their experiences in learning is really a priceless part in teaching my students."
