My experience at Central has been amazing. I love that it isn't that big but it is not too small either. Everyone is extremely helpful, genuine and nice. My favorite things about central is the people. The staff, professors and students are all very welcoming and amazing. The lady that cleans my dorm bathroom always asks me how my day is going and we make small talk, she always has a smile on her face and is very approachable. Every professor that I have had so far has genuinely cared about my education as well as leaving the class with new and important information. I have already met so many people from my first quarter here and everyone that I have met has treated me with such kindness and respect. Every single person is willing to help you with whatever you need. I love that!

I love both programs! My career goals include teaching Elementary Education, in either an ESL, or Bilingual classroom. I hope to change the lives of all my students, with a sheltered classroom, student-centered, engaging content, and the instillation of an "I can" attitude. I have been speaking with my TESL professor, Dr. McCain about traveling to Honduras over the summer, and being part of a practicum with ESL, and Spanish-Speaking students. This experience intrigues me, because I have always been a so-called "majority," and never felt "out of place," or misunderstood life around me. I believe that TESL/Bilingual Ed is all about getting those students who feel out of place, to be comfortable in their shoes, proud of their culture, and proud of their academic success. :)

The overall experience at Central Washington University is great! The professors are very understanding, engaging, and helpful to those of us students who need the extra assistance. It is a very liberal campus that provides a comfortable environment for all types of students. Another thing that helps is that the professional pilot program is a little more affordable than many other colleges that offer the same program.
