It’s not every day you hear someone say they love doing homework, but Sydney Ringel ’22 says homework is her life. The inclusive elementary and special education major has always felt comfortable in school, and she’s determined to pass that on to future generations.
In Syracuse University’s School of Education, Ringel is especially focused on how students interact with each other and what helps them succeed. “Studying inclusive education was a priority for me because I want to ensure that every student is valued and accepted in my classroom,” says the Marlboro, New Jersey, native.
Her favorite subject to teach? Math. “I can’t wait to teach math in my classroom,” Ringel says. “I think it’s fun, and hopefully the kids will be as excited as I am. And if they’re not, well, we’ll figure out a way to make that happen.”
