Making a Difference

left quotation mark

“I have been a part of the College of Education since the fall of my sophomore year, and I have learned so much throughout those two years. Each class is carefully taught by some of the best instructors on Troy’s campus. Because many of them were educators before coming to teach at Troy, they have a passion for teaching and a passion for preparing future educators. They understand the difficulties that come when you are placed to observe at an inner city school, a school that has low funding, or a school that is completely different than the schools you attended yourself. But they also understand that it’s at these placements were you learn to grow outside your comfort zone and see how much you can impact those around you. They are personal, compassionate, give “tough love,” and I know I can go to any one of them if I have any type of problem, personal or professional.”
