Clarissa Barton:"Where to attend college is a big decision. When I decided to
go to Western, I was unsure. Now I am certain that I made the right choice. The classrooms
encourage personal thought and have allowed me to customize my learning experience. I have
never been more excited about my education until now and know that because of this I will use
what I have learned for the rest of life."
Taylor Laug:"Deciding to attend college was a big step for me. I didn't enjoy
sitting in a classroom all day learning about things that had no real life application. And I
was skeptical of being the salty 'old guy' around all the younger kids. The reality of Western
Wyoming Community College is that it is not like other colleges. The classes are very hands-on
and present day-to-day life application. The instructors are down to earth and highly
knowledgeable in their fields. Deciding to pursue a degree as an educator is proving to be
very exciting and challenging. Visiting classrooms to observe the education process,
understanding the different methods of teaching, studying the physiology of the adolescent
mind, and actually practicing how to teach a class are just a few of the experiences to which
one can look forward to do at Western. The classes are a mix of younger and older students,
which is great because it presents some life experience into the discussions. Pursuing a
career path in education is one I would highly recommend."
Tucker Leibee:"Pursuing an education degree through Western has provided me
with a contemporary awareness of the future. Because of the faculty, I believe that becoming a
teacher will grant me the power to show and instruct the change I want to see in this world.
Accordingly, my future students can then choose whether or not to make their lives and this
world a better place."
Brenna Stone:"Western Wyoming Community College is a great choice for education
students. The education professors have an extensive background in teaching, so they can
therefore provide a more personal view and go beyond the textbook. They do an amazing job of
connecting what they are teaching to the real and present world, and they want the students to
know that what is being taught is relevant and will in fact be put to use in future careers.
Choosing Western Wyoming Community College to begin my journey towards a career in education
has proven to be a successful decision."
