The Northwest Experience

Kirayle quickly realized – while attending student life events and meeting faculty and staff during a campus visit – that Northwest had the family atmosphere and resources he was looking for as a first-generation student.

As an aspiring teacher, he entered an elementary classroom during his first semester at Northwest and learned classroom management techniques to build structure for his future students while still providing a fun and educational environment. He enjoyed the collaborative learning experience and working with teachers in other disciplines to create lesson plans that were used in real-life situations.

Northwest advisors, faculty and staff helped him develop leadership skills through student government, as well as his academic knowledgeto put him on the right path, ensuring he was career ready, day one.
