“Jewell professors instill the ideals of hard work, doing what's best for kids and thinking outside the box. They taught me the importance of trying new things in the classroom, and I'm piloting a new class in business after two years as a teacher.”Abby Rowan Nickel, '17, 6th grade science teacher in Wentzville, Missouri, School District
