speakerWhat People Are Saying

I have learned the importance of letting students set goals and helping students towards accomplishing them, using a variety of strategies that are both age and subject matter appropriate, implementing technologies, modifying where need be, and assessing for student learning and knowledge. Only through individualizing all of these can students reach their fullest potential. -- Joel Schildwachter
