Student Spotlight

Kayla Kaiser

In the English Teaching Program, I have had the amazing opportunity to meet a community of people that are dedicated to building positive connections. Dr. Warrington & Dr. Fredricksen have created learning spaces that allowed me to discover my beliefs about what learning should be, as well as support my growth as an educator. Looking to the future, I would like to begin working within local school districts as a secondary teacher, working toward a Graduate Certificate in English Language Development Pre K-12 and eventually a Masters Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
