“Coming right out of high school I admit I was very nervous. The College of Western Idaho made the transition smooth for me. Teaching is a career where I can continue learning new skills with my students and transfer those skills to other aspects of my life. I love to learn and I want to know as much as I can about most subjects. I am generally interested in everything. I am really excited to continue my education. Knowledge is power. I want to be the best teacher I can be.” —Mallory O’Mahony —Education—Transformational Experience
