An ECU memory you would like to share: My favorite memories at ECU took place at the NDCDC and DOCC! I loved working with the kids and other teachers there; it was my second home during my time at ECU. It was a space where I grew as a person, a teacher, learned so much, and made lifelong friendships. Some of my favorite moments at the NDCDC and DOCC were going on walks around ECU campus and playing in the grassy bowl. I will forever be thankful for the center and DOCC.
