Our student teachers from the Orlean Bullard Beeson School of Education receive tremendous benefits from their experiences in the schools, but I’m frequently reminded that they often give as much as they receive. Susan Galloway, ESL teacher at Vestavia Hills Elementary Cahaba Heights, sent this message two weeks ago to Dean Jeanie Box:
I want to write you to compliment you on all the wonderful student teachers that you all have sent to Cahaba Heights from Samford. Margaret Ann Walker and Brandy Travis have truly been exceptional teachers and I just wanted you to know how impressed that we have all been with both of them. They are just so professional and so passionate about helping the students. You all should be so proud of them as they are excellent teachers and they are wonderful representatives of Samford University. They just really have that "wow" factor and we are going to miss them so much!
The world is better because Samford education graduates are professional and passionate.
