speakerWhat People Are Saying

With each lesson I teach, I make sure that I have a full understanding of the content being taught. I prepare thoroughly so that I am knowledgeable about all aspects of the content and can address it the most effectively. I have learned that it is very important for a teacher to have each lesson well planned out before teaching. I do so by preparing not only the lesson itself, but differentiation methods for my students who are at different academic levels. -- Elizabeth Bartels

Lizzie stands out not only as an excellent student but also as a natural in teaching young children. Each lesson Lizzie designs has clearly aligned objectives that match the state standards. The goals for those objectives are measurable and often reinforce other subject goals and connect to other area of content. -- University Supervisor

Lizzie expects her children to work hard and they do. She expects her children to love learning and they do. She expects her children to contribute to meaningful conversations, and they do. She expects her children to love learning, and they do. But she has even higher expectations for herself. Lizzie plans lessons each day to entice the most reluctant learner to be interested. -- Cooperating Teacher
