Advice for Students

An educator of impact recognizes that each learner is made in the image of God with a purpose in mind; the educator must focus on making a difference so that each learner will know and achieve their God given potential. It is the focal point of all we learn in the classroom. As we learn to apply theory through skills in the classroom, this is always our goal.
