Great Teachers Change Lives

What Our Students Are Saying

“Ms. C was the overall greatest cooperating teacher I have ever had during my experiences at Marshall University. She was willing to help me during my teaching experiences to improve on different techniques. I would definitely recommend her for any students. She was a great role model and I am so pleased I was able to be placed with her.”

“Mrs. P is amazing! She never let me down and always made me feel important. She would go out of her way to accompany my schedule when coming to observe. Her door was always open whether I was wanting to share good news with her or cry from the stress of life and student teaching. She always let me know how I was doing, both the good and the bad. She helped a great deal with my confidence this semester and truly helped me grow into the teacher I am becoming. Mrs. P is a wonderful mentor and any student would be lucky to have her to guide them through their student teaching experience. I could not have asked for a better supervisor.”
