From the Teacher Education faculty:
“We’ve all had memorable teachers in our lives. Some were a positive force, others were not. As a teacher of future teachers, I try my best to model and instill in my students positive teacher dispositions such as a love of learning, humor, patience, and accountability.”
“As a teacher and a lifelong learner, I believe the best way for students to learn how to be an effective teacher is to learn the WHAT alongside the HOW. I believe in teaching students what they need to know about education and teaching through the use of instructional activities they will also use with their own students one day. With that in mind, I strive every day to create an engaging and dynamic learning experience for our students.”
“I love the look in a student’s eye when they get a concept or when they realize what a passion they have for a subject. My goals as an educator are to inspire students to experience success, to encourage students to be lifelong learners and to spark a fire in prospective teachers to be excited about what their future holds.”
Students learn by applying their knowledge during practica and student teaching in classrooms throughout the McPherson area.
