Class of: 2018

When I was young, I used to read “Junie B. Jones” books aloud to my mom. I think I loved reading so much at that age because I got to spend a lot of time with her. When I was in eighth grade, I had a wonderful English teacher, Mrs. Wolff. It was the pleasure of being in her English class that inspired me to want to be a teacher. Even though my life changed significantly since eighth grade, one thing has remained the same: my excitement for reading, which I am always eager to share. At SNC, I’ve been able to begin volunteering and teaching in classrooms all over Incline.

Nicole Ross takes break from reading to lay in the snow at SNC Tahoe“I chose to go here because I wanted a small community with a teaching program, but I got so much more than what I bargained for.”

I have made countless close relationships with my professors and SNC staff members, been involved with Student Government Association and was elected the class president, begun working on my career tutoring English at the Tutoring Center here, and have excelled in my studies.

I feel that I have grown in nearly every aspect of my life.
