Robin Pyrchalla grew up in Buffalo, New York. As a young child, she dreamed of one day becoming an educator. She felt a special calling to help children who come from disadvantaged backgrounds. After graduating high school, she attended the State University of New York at Cortland. She studied with a dual major in Childhood Education and Special Education.

After only one semester in college, Robin Pyrchalla was accepted into the C.U.R.E. scholar’s program. Cortland’s Urban Recruitment of Educators is a program that requires accepted college students to take three courses specially designed to teach them about the problems with education in urban areas.

These classes prepared Pyrchalla for what working in a diverse environment would bring. They also gave her an idea of just how much influence she could have over her students’ futures.
