“I can say with 100% honesty that Baylor fully prepared me to be a successful teacher. My time as a TA [teaching associate/junior year] and Intern [senior year] was the best preparation I could ask for. Many of my fellow teachers were able to student teach for only about six weeks, but I student taught for a full year. I knew how to interact with students and teachers alike, and I was confident in my ability to create lessons that were creative and fun, while still being able to successfully translate the objectives to my students.”
“Kids spend a third of their time at school, so they need to receive some love there. At Baylor, I’m learning methods and content, but I’m also learning the importance of positive relationships with my students. I know God wants me to be a teacher, I’m teaching in the field every day, and I love every minute.”

“In our Professional Development Schools, Baylor faculty are teaching college classes right there in the public schools. The Baylor students are learning about pedagogy and then going directly into a classroom to apply it. There is no disconnect between theory and practice for them.”
