speakerWhat People Are Saying

I believe I excel most at my specific positive feedback, harboring a positive environment. Using a variety of questions and analogies, I was able to not only connect to previous learning, but I was able to tie it to future learning. The world of teaching is ever changing, and I am ready to be part of that. -- Ashley Meyer

Ashley reached out to all types of learners during the lesson. Her auditory, visual and tactile learners all benefited from her lesson design. There were three students in a group that appeared to be ELL students. Immediately after the instructions were delivered to the class in English she moved to this group and insured their success by discussing the assignment with them in Spanish. -- University Supervisor

Not only is her content knowledge impressive but her sensitivity to and caring for her students’ needs is also apparent. Her application of the theories we are studying in the Human Growth and Learning course and her knowledge of adolescents and their emotional and physical development reveal her quest for excellence. -- University Professor
