speakerWhat People Are Saying

Building positive rapport with students allows me to be the effective teacher I want to be in a student-centered classroom. One of my favorite things about teaching is that I am constantly learning too! Education and teaching young minds is something I hold dear to my heart. -- Misty Lawrence

Her passion for teaching, her love for learning, and her strong connections with her students were apparent to me from the first time that I observed her in the classroom. Her skills and preparedness for the classroom distinguished her more as a first year teacher, rather than a student teacher, unfamiliar with classroom practices. Her positive attitude and devotion to what she is doing is very noticeable to all those around her. -- University Supervisor

It is not often, in fact I think it’s highly unlikely, to find a student teacher who possesses the qualities that exhibit excellence in teaching and outstanding leadership so early in their career. She continues to grow and learn as an educator, modeling the lifelong learning desire we strive to instill in our students. Her commitment to children and learning is evident in everything she does for our school. -- Cooperating Teacher
