Derek Rodriguez Derek Rodriguez

"What I enjoyed the most about the PE program at UNC was how caring and helpful the professors were for me. I was not just a number to the professors. [...] When it comes to preparation to become a PE teacher, I don't think there is a better school out there."

– Derek Rodriguez, 2015
