Aaron Smith, NCC Student

After attending another college while he was living in New York, Aaron wasn't sure what direction he wanted to go in when he came to Northampton. After taking placement tests at NCC and talking to advisors, he was able to start on the middle education route. "I want to become a Physical Education teacher at a middle school back in Queens, New York," which is the area where Aaron grew up. He feels that during this most impressionable time in their lives, kids are willing to listen. He can have a positive influence on their future. "Northampton has given me goals to reach for as I complete my studies and graduate to become a productive member of society."
