speakerWhat People Are Saying

I consistently motivated my students to take ownership of their work, accountability for their growth, and to achieve academic success beyond the expectations they had previously set for themselves. -- Lynzee Villafranca

Lynzee was intuitively able to strike the proper note of being professional, yet concerned and caring about the students. She was impressive in her ability to approach them with compassion and understanding, yet not give into the urge to allow them to develop apathy for the assignments. -- Cooperating Teacher

After mastering challenging objectives, the students were motivated and wanted to be successful. This can-do attitude on the part of the students speaks to the transformational impact Lynzee had on her students’ lives. -- Education Dept. Chair
