speakerWhat People Are Saying

I want the students in my classroom to leave with a good attitude toward math as well as school in general, for that matter. I am confident in my ability to engage students, and I make it a point to be enthusiastic and positive about what students do, praising them often. -- Katie Poener

Katie took time to get to know the students as individuals and build relationships. She modeled for students and explained the thinking behind the answers instead of simply showing the answer. -- University Faculty

I have been able to observe Katie demonstrate her depth of knowledge in math. It takes a passion for seeing students learn, and Katie has that passion. -- Cooperating Teacher
