PNW has created networking opportunities and professional relationships that I am grateful for, with mentors that are wonderful role models.

I have been given the chance to connect with my professors on a more personal level as well as the endless opportunities of getting experience in my field that has helped me reach my professional goals.

Bailey Bristley, Early Childhood Education

Success is no accident. It’s hard work, perseverance and love of what you’re doing. I wouldn’t be where I am without the guidance of my professors in the School of Education and Counseling.
