I want to reaffirm what a great program Pacific designed. The more meetings I'm involved with, and the more "new teacher support" I receive from my district, the more I'm convinced you prepared us very, very well. I am continually in situations where I see new teachers flounder with issues we covered all year, including literacy, sheltered instruction, learning communities and differentiation. Actually, I see experienced teachers struggle with the same things, and it's nice to know that with as many challenges as every teacher continually faces, there are some I'm either not struggling through, or not stressed out about, because I have been so well prepared.
--Sarah, 2013 MAT STEM Graduate and new Tigard School District Teacher
