From Our Students

The following responses were collected as part of an exit survey conducted by the Department of Education with traditional and non-traditional elementary and secondary students. See the quantitative survey results.

"I am confident in planning, prep, and delivery of material and I can discuss frameworks now with a foundation of understanding in place. Very prepared."

"NNU's Program provided me with the opportunities to practice writing units which helped me develop organized curriculum with formative and summative assessments. I also continue to use my weekly and long term teaching schedules to plan and prepare my units."

"The program included a good variety of coursework and we learned through experience. I think the best thing NNU did was pair me with an excellent mentor teacher for student teaching. She continued to support me even after I graduated and really made me a good teacher. I also felt that NNU did us a service by providing numerous classroom experiences for all four years."
