“The education I received at Tabor really helped prepare me for the teaching job. The small class sizes and approachable professors created a positive learning environment. One of the most valuable experiences I had during my time at Tabor was working at the Writing Center. I learned how to grade essays and give writing feedback, both of which are skills I use on a daily basis with my current students.”
