speakerWhat People Are Saying

Small grouping allows me to give students the attention they deserve in a classroom with 20 other students and give them the feedback in order to enhance their learning. -- Enrika Olivarez

She monitored comprehension with high level thinking questions she had prepared in advance. She learned to collect and interpret data to improve student academic performance.

Enrika demonstrated passion and genuine concern and appreciation of the students. One of my students wrote her a letter that says: “Ms. Olivarez, you are the best teacher I ever had.” -- Cooperating Teacher

She also had all students fully engaged by teaching content in short time increments to stay within students’ attention span. Enrika further provided students with different learning modalities (hands on, audio, and visual), one-on-one instruction, small group instruction, whole group instruction and partner work. -- Assistant Lecturer
