Joshua Engel '18

Oceanside, NY

Hello! My name is Josh and I am a junior TUteach Mathematics and Computer Science major, on the 4+1 Masters in Mathematics Secondary Education track. I grew up on the shores of Long Island in Oceanside, NY. I was one of those teenagers who never wanted to talk about college, but when I visited Temple I knew this would be the place I would call home for the next four years of my life. I really enjoy the atmosphere at Temple, one that places importance on both academics and truly finding yourself. I started off a shy freshman Computer Science major, but after taking a one credit field course in teaching I changed the direction of my life. Not only did I discover my love for teaching, but I found my passion in all things spiritual by joining Hoot Paranormal, expanded my religious views by joining Temple Hillel and really "came out of my shell" by joining HATT. Everyone has their own unique story to tell, and Temple has shaped my story in more ways than I can count. I can't wait to hear your story, so if you don't see me in the Honors Lounge or at one of the many food trucks, feel free to send me an email so I can help you in any way I can!
