Kevin Kareckas '12

Kevin Kareckas, who came to Wheelock disliking math and science, now has a double major in elementary education and math and science and received a Foukal Award for Achievement in Math and Science.

"I liked the professors and their way of teaching science and math so much that by the end of my first year, I wanted more and more."

He plans to get a master's in special education "because there is such a need in the schools" and will teach—science.
