speakerWhat People Are Saying

I believe that taking the time to appreciate my students’ efforts and have them communicate their understanding is some of the most valuable time in my classroom. High expectations with the appropriate support have not led to disappointing results in my experiences as a teacher and learner. -- Raquel Hiller

Raquel has an unusually high level of intellectual curiosity. She’s not just teaching students about the symmetry of a butterfly’s wings, she is raising butterflies herself. She shares this mission for intellectual growth with her students. Raquel brings to her teaching a deep commitment to every child. To be in her classroom is to be in a place where children find joy in learning, and inspiration to be all that they can be. -- University Supervisor

Raquel has displayed a caring attitude towards her students, an enthusiasm for teaching, and creativity in planning lessons. She has been guided by both the personalities and the academic needs of her students. -- Mentor Teacher
