speakerWhat People Are Saying

One of the most valuable concepts I have learned while student teaching is the importance of classroom management. While teaching, I learned how to set clear expectations, rules, and procedures for my students. Watching my mentor teachers manage their classrooms was a great learning experience for me and improved my classroom management skills. -- Stephanie Jones

Instructional delivery is the one area where so many of our student teachers struggle, but Stephanie’s natural ability to understand her students and their needs differentiates her from any other student teacher with whom I have worked. From day one in my classroom Stephanie has constantly impressed me with her instinctive ability to connect to prior knowledge and to extend learning. -- Cooperating Teacher

Stephanie’s personal comprehension and application of math concepts enabled her to shift instructional skills immediately to meet the needs of the students. Her ability to “read the student’s comprehension”, modify and adapt; places Stephanie well above many beginning teachers. -- University Supervisor
