speakerWhat People Are Saying

I want to be a teacher because I see teaching as an opportunity to share knowledge and passion for learning with young people. Effective teachers can have lifelong positive impacts on students, and this makes teaching a very exciting profession to me. Through education courses and through fieldwork in various classrooms, I have learned that students have unique learning needs, students want to be engaged in school, and teachers should have high expectations for all students. -- Catherine Davison
