speakerWhat People Are Saying

Above all, I have learned that being the best teacher possible means paying attention to the success of each individual student in my classroom. I have found it an exceptional challenge to evaluate each learner’s progress and ask “How can I succeed in helping my students reach their goals?” -- Shaina Ryan

Her gentle, loving, patient and accepting spirit drew even the most struggling learner into the circle of Math. Her dedication to the subject of mathematics enhanced her ability to contribute to team planning. She had great ideas, was accepting of new ideas, and was willing to share and ask questions. Her knowledge of Math skills, tutoring experience and working with students truly helped her deliver quality instruction in the classroom. -- Cooperating Teacher

I have observed Shaina in both of her student teaching assignments, fourth grade math in a departmentalized setting and seventh grade middle school math. In both situations, Shaina has exhibited professionalism, knowledge of content, eagerness to reach every student, and good humor coupled with good sense. -- University Supervisor
