speakerWhat People Are Saying

When we can relate our subject to our students’ interests and through that, build relationships and trust with them, that is when we know our job is significant. -- Shelby Turner

Ms. Turner is an exemplary student, future teacher, and community member. What distinguishes Shelby beyond her peers are her passion and dedication to service to the community---as well as her dedication to excellence in teaching English Language Arts, especially for adolescents who struggle academically. Not only does Shelby have the ability to engage and motivate adolescents who come from diverse socioeconomic and racial backgrounds to connect with literature and learning---but she has the compassion to serve her community as documented on her resume by the service those in need. -- University Faculty

I consider Shelby to be one of the best students I have had the pleasure to teach. She is diligent, inquisitive, and a hard worker. She illustrates clear leadership and organization skills when working with her peers, who often gravitated toward her during class discussion. She will undoubtedly transfer these skills to her future teaching career. -- University Faculty
