Success Story

staceyStacey Warkentin

(2014 graduate)

Elementary Teacher at Maize Central Elementary, Maize, Kansas

“Tabor did a wonderful job with preparing me for my present job. The education classes I took helped me to see how a class could look and what it takes to be a teacher. Not only was my time in the Tabor classroom beneficial, I also had many opportunities to see various classrooms in all types of cities and towns. Tabor knows that it is imperative to not only gain knowledge ABOUT your future career, but to also be immersed in that future career long before you are officially working. This allows all education students at Tabor to feel confident and ready to walk into their future with their heads held high.”
