Student Stories

Students on PC's Campus
PC Student Monique Duran"In the next few years, I would like to complete my Bachelor's Degree and begin my career in teaching. I was drawn to teaching because I want to make a difference in students' lives. In the fall of 2021, I will be transferring to California State University, Bakersfield to complete my degree. In EDUC P110, I learned teaching strategies, classroom management, how to accommodate English Language Learners, and much more. I found this information useful and cannot wait to use it in the classroom. Dr. Pengilly did a wonderful job preparing me and providing me with resources that will assist me in my future teaching. The Education Careers workshops helped me by providing me with information that I can use in the future that I may not have gotten if I had not attended."

PC Student Jacob Jolly"My long-term career goal is to teach Music at the middle school level. Dr. Michelle Pengilly and her instruction is allowing me to develop the skills to be an effective teacher in the near future. The Education Careers Program at Porterville College is giving me the opportunity to give back to my community by supporting me through my education career path."
