speakerWhat People Are Saying

Creating an interactive environment that urges the children to become personally involved with the material is the best way to lead students to an experience that encourages a desire to continue learning. I plan to continue to teach in a way that appeals to the diversity of learning styles by formulating lesson plans that address tactile, visual, and auditory learners through differentiated instruction. I strongly believe that safe, meaningful exploration is one of the best tools for teaching. Being an educator is a privileged position that requires constant learning alongside students, and I’m excited to begin this journey. -- Jaclyn Furman
