" The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demostrates. The great teacher inspires." William Arthur Ward
During the Fall of 2008, we are hoping to begin work ing with the Minority Teacher Recruitment Center for teachers and the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education to help develop the program even more. The students do a shadowing program, which involves learning all aspects of teaching.
If you are interested in dedicating yourself to the field of teaching, please feel free to contact Mrs. Penny Clark.
