speakerWhat People Are Saying

I am a firm believer that if I put in the time to find high interest ways to teach, the results will be highly engaged students who are grasping for the stars. Teaching is a constant evaluation of ourselves and whether or not we are teaching in the most effective way for the growth of our students. The key is being proactive and willing to switch our approach if it means closing the gap between the students’ potential and the students’ achievement. -- Sara Wiles

Sara has shown that she possesses professional skills for collaborating, evaluating, problem-solving, and instructional planning far in advance of most beginning teachers. During instruction Ms. Wiles uses her knowledge of content, masterfully blended with what she knows about each student, to enhance student understanding. -- University Supervisor
