speakerWhat People Are Saying

This semester, in one of my education classes, I worked with two middle school teachers in the classroom to apply the knowledge that I am studying back at the university to the real life of teaching. I struggled with my first lesson plan and left feeling that I had a long way. I was able to take what I had learned from the first lesson and apply it to a second lesson that was not required by my education class but which I chose to carry out in order to gain more experience. It was a great teaching experience and I learned a lot about fun ways to engage students in challenging and meaningful material. -- Samantha Bos

Samantha is intelligent, insightful, hard-working, possesses a great sense of humor, resilient, and is committed to teaching. It is this dedication and maturity on so many fronts – academic, personal, interpersonal, and intellectual – that makes her a remarkable student and future teacher. -- University Professor

I can attest to her solid foundation in content knowledge and have seen how she engages students, incorporating a range of disciplines to increase connections and learning. Her skills in organization paired with her understanding of pedagogy support her effective planning and help her meet the unique learning needs of students. -- University Professor
