speakerWhat People Are Saying

Using the students’ strengths and differences to motivate and encourage, providing opportunities for individual, paired, small group, and large-group learning, movement, technology, and theatre, visual arts, or dance – all of these strategies helped me maintain a fun, engaging, manageable classroom as a student teacher. -- Mary Katherine Curtis

Ms. Curtis planned exceptional lessons that included both the direct teaching and inquiry models for instruction and reflected a clear focus on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills objectives for second grade. She provided many excellent opportunities for her students to monitor and assess their own progress and designed rubrics to help her students monitor their own learning. -- University Supervisor

Ms. Curtis was an exceptional student teacher who always went above and beyond in her required duties. She had great rapport with the children and made learning fun. -- Cooperating Teacher
