speakerWhat People Are Saying

Every time I teach a lesson, whether it is academic or athletic, I make sure to give students a purpose for learning something. I give them reasons why they need to learn and show them the value of education. -- Veronika Gutierrez

Her lessons were differentiated to meet the learning abilities of all students. By differentiating her instruction, she became quite familiar with guided reading and guided math. She understands that you cannot teach one lesson to all students.

Her desire for student success and eagerness to learn more and willingness to do more than required shows how dedicated she is. -- 5th Grade Teacher

She did an outstanding job of getting students’ attention for learning, moving immediately into the lesson by going over material from a previous lesson and getting input from students with questions and explanations which kept the whole class extremely engaged. Her modeling and explanations were incredible and the students truly were engaged and demonstrated that they had learned the concepts of the lesson. -- University Supervisor
