Q&A with Brok

How has INSPIRE or the School of Education helped you grow as a future teacher?

INSPIRE has definitely helped me with meeting teachers of the year and educators who have almost perfected their craft and it helps my networking and skills.

What has been your favorite experience as a member of the INSPIRE so far?

My favorite experience was definitely either going to St. Louis or meeting panels of superintendents of nearby school districts and hear what they want from future teachers.

What influenced your decision to become a Peer Leader?

I wanted to boost my resume and I enjoyed the culture of the floor and really thought of Professor James Damico as a role model and wanted to be under his wing for another year.

Most other floors don’t build bonds this strong and it can be a make or break for college. I met my best friends on INSPIRE and they helped me through my lowest points.
