Contemporary Issues, Practicum, and Methods

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

I love this professor! I truly believe that she is by far the best at what she does. She challenges you- gives you a heavy amount of reading and assignments, but the assignments are ALWAYS meaningful! She has so much experience in this field. Her multicultural pedagogical approach and her passion for America's youth grabs you. She is the reason that I am going to be a teacher. She is the reason that the ed program is getting its much needed revamping! She gives you tons of comments on your papers and help researching if you need it. Take Contemporary Issues if you think you may be interested in Education. Its a class that will open your eyes to the inequities that exist in the education system.
Take her class!
