"I am a strong advocate and promoter of higher education. As a first generation college graduate and of Native American (Ho-Chunk Nation and Oneida Nation) and Mexican-American heritage, I would like to express that this was one of the most important decisions I made for my future. My college degree opened many doors of opportunities". Author Ruby Payne said, "Education is the best tool for breaking the cycle of poverty". "I couldn't agree more. We invite you to sign up for the 2017 summer PreCollege Programs this summer at the University of Wisconsin (UW) Oshkosh. I am confident that you will have a great learning experience and will elect to return year after year until high school graduation. We also encourage you to consider UW Oshkosh as your school of choice. In the meantime, continue to strive for excellence both academically and personally. I'll see you next summer!"

Hello everyone! I was extremely excited to join PreCollege Programs in November of 2016. I am very familiar with PreCollege Programs here at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, as I was an RA for the programs in 2012 and was then the Assistant Team Leader in 2013. I then graduated from UW-Oshkosh in the spring of 2014 with a Bachelors of Science in Education. After that, I taught for two years at Oshkosh North High School. Though I love teaching, my clear passion and goal is to help adolescents achieve their academic goals, both while they are still in middle/high school and also once they graduate. With that, I felt working for PreCollege Programs would help me fulfill that goal.
I look forward to sharing my experiences and advice with you on how to be successful in whatever you choose to do after high school. These programs are a great way to make friends, learn important social skills, and gain content knowledge from UW Oshkosh professors. I hope your school year is going well, and we look forward to seeing you this summer!
