speakerWhat People Are Saying

As I work through my lesson plans, I always think about my diverse learners, planning for my kinesthetic, auditory and visual learners. Technology is constantly being used in my lessons. Giving positive recognition to my students is a priority. -- Brandie Roller

Brandie began strong and throughout student teaching continued to develop and increase in ability and expertise. She demonstrates evidence of her strong planning ability. Ms. Roller’s extraordinary planning was shown when she implemented station work with activities that supported and related the learning into real practice. The collaboration among students totally engaged them and reflected her use of AVID strategies. -- University Supervisor

Brandie creates an environment whereby the students enlist their prior knowledge, as well as relate the information to “real world” experiences, to maximize their learning. Her willingness to grow, and collaborate with those around her, sets her apart. She has truly gone from student teacher to professional teacher. -- Mentor Teacher
