  • “I’m near the end of my student teaching, I’m looking for better ways to motivate students and organize my time.”  Don Byrd, student-teacher at Crispus Attucks High School, Indianapolis, Indiana
  • “I’m looking for things I can implement in a diverse classroom, which I will be working in.” Tina Helding, student at Millikin University, Decatur, Illinois
  • “It was really helpful to talk to other teachers who have the same issues and struggles and see what practices they use to deal with them.” Kristen Zack, South Lyon, Michigan.
  • “I found the classroom management discussion helpful. I’m assuming a lot of new teachers struggle with that.”  Rachel Eschenbacher, Saginaw, Michigan.
