“School is different for everyone, but for me, coming back has been life changing and I’m loving every minute of it.”

After nine years in the workforce, Ragan Montero decided she wasn’t doing what she really loved. She decided to enroll at NCTC, majoring in Education.

“It’s been challenging remembering how to do things,” said Ragan, “but it has made me a better student and person getting to learn new things.”

One thing Ragan wants others to know about NCTC is that the small class sizes really benefit the students. As a freshman in 2010, Ragan “didn’t realize how much school meant to her so she blew it off.” “I didn’t think school would be useful,” said Ragan, “but here I am, 9 years later, back at school. School is different for everyone, but for me, coming back has been life changing and I’m loving every minute of it.”
