I love working with the Tomorrow's Teachers Learning Community. I think it is important to start the professional attitude of teaching with our beginning students. I enjoy watching them grow as they learn about themselves as educators and begin to work collaboratively. I also enjoy focusing on Early Childhood Education with our more advanced teacher candidates. Early Childhood sets the stage for all education.
