speakerWhat People Are Saying

During my student teaching, I realized that teaching a lesson is not solely about being prepared, but also about being aware of how students respond and how well they are grasping the material. I used videos or auditory programs, hands on material, and visual props to keep students engaged. -- Abigail Marquez

Abigail has a gift for being mindfully present during her instruction. By that, I mean she is confident in the content she is teaching while being alert to the immediate needs of her students. She is responsive and flexible in her teaching. Abigail routinely demonstrates a desire to receive constructive feedback and doesn’t hesitate to ask for clarification of the instructional strategies and techniques she is learning. It is evident that her primary goal is to be the best teacher she can be for her students. -- University Faculty

From day one, Ms. Marquez was a very active and positive part of our classroom. She studied the TEKS for the subject area she would first start teaching and had great lessons that kept students engaged and interacting the entire lesson. She taught as if she had been teaching for a couple of years. -- Mentor Teacher
