Q&A with Grace

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

INSPIRE has helped me grow as a future teacher because I have gained a lot of insight on successful teaching through the panels at seminar, fireside chats with educators, and research projects.

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

My favorite INSPIRE experience was being able to have dinner with the National Teacher of the Year, Mandy Manning.

What influenced your decision to become a Peer Leader?

I wanted to be a peer leader so I could spend another year as a part of this community. I also wanted to be able to guide the freshman and be a resource for them.

I was very nervous to come to IU and the School of Education but INSPIRE really helped me branch out and make long lasting friendships.
