speakerWhat People Are Saying

My lessons constantly change and adapt to the students. I feel strongly that lessons should be presented visually, orally, and kinesthetically, and should relate to students daily lives. -- Erica Warner

As she took over the teaching in her mentor’s classroom she realized that lessons and managing a classroom are interconnected and cannot be separated.

She went out of her comfort zone to find lessons to use resources the classroom had that were unfamiliar to her, researching games and ways to use the Smart Board which is new to this classroom. -- Supervisor

She demonstrates an outstanding ability to help all students learn. She takes the time to learn each child’s needs to help them improve. -- Cooperating Teacher
