Inside NKU


  • Bridging the Gap

    "Something I want to do is bridge the gap between graduation and a teacher’s first three years to help them build a solid foundation. Those first three years are not easy, and if we help make that transition easier then they are more likely to stay in the profession."


  • Always Ready to Help

    “I can confidently say that I have yet to go into a clinical situation where I haven’t felt like I was fully prepared to face it. Even if I did have any doubts, all of my clinical instructors have been fantastic, always ready and willing to help."

    A Community Feel

    “I will be teaching third grade at St. Peter & Paul School in California, Kentucky. I have 12 kids in my class, and I’m super excited about seeing them grow from start to finish throughout the year.”
