speakerWhat People Are Saying

My training has taught me that, as a teacher, it is important for me to realize that I am a facilitator in a child’s learning. Although I lead my students to learning, I need to also allow them to create their own ideas in ways they understand. -- Heather Welch

I believe that Heather represents excellence as a future teacher—not only by observing her ability to teach at this beginning level, but in her knowledge of theory and use of professionalism in every way. -- Professor

Her coursework and the lessons that she created for her mentor teacher’s classroom always began with the students’ needs in mind and were developed to include consideration of ongoing assessment, research-based methodology, and appropriate classroom management. -- Professor
