speakerWhat People Are Saying

I will do whatever is necessary to give my students the tools they need to be successful, whatever that looks like for my given group of diverse learners. I challenge my students to question, explore, to try and even to fail. -- Kevin McCombs

He is one of those rare teacher candidates who comes along once every few years and simply “Wows” his instructors, supervisors, mentor teachers, students, and peers. He has the capability of energizing learning in the classroom through hands-on/minds-on inquiry and active learning. He assesses student learning by creating rubrics and using formative types of assessments such as journals and checklists. He makes sure all students are successful in his class. -- University Faculty
