Faculty Associate on teaching prospective teachers at SFU

September 20, 2011

We asked Kathy Nielson, a Faculty Associate (FA) in the Faculty of Education at SFU, about her experiences teaching prospective teachers at SFU. Here's what she had to say:

"I find it an absolute joy to spend all day surrounded by people who are eager to learn, collaborative, deeply thoughtful, open, and enthusiastic. I am inspired by their energy and their commitment to growing and learning.

This is not to deny that there are difficult and uncomfortable moments—painful, even—but the majority of my experience has been very positive and refreshing."
