Mathematics Teacher, Wichita North High School (Kan.)

“Tabor College offers excellent instruction in curriculum, differentiation tactics, content, and classroom management strategies. What made the education program at Tabor stand out to me was what it offered outside of typical teaching content. My first year teaching in the classroom has given me a wide range of experiences that I could never have anticipated, but for which I felt well-prepared because of my Tabor education. My professors at Tabor poured into me and helped develop me not only as an educator but as a person and a Christian. As I learned the technical side of teaching, I could also learn how to integrate my faith and calling into a career that excites me. Being a part of the Tabor community and having excellent mentors have helped me tremendously in teaching and cheering on my students.
