TEACHer Testimonials

For me, the Blinn Teach has prepared me to go into my first year of teaching with knowledge of a third year teacher.  I have had people come into my office telling me that I am doing things and thinking through things that no first year teachers think through.  I really believe this has been because of all of the support and knowledge given to me through the Blinn teach program!

(ESL/EC-6)  "Blinn TEACH is an amazing program that provided me with the guidance I needed to become a successful teacher.  With the support of Blinn TEACH's qualified staff I was able to find a certification area suitable to my interests, receive important educational materials that developed me as a teaching professional, and obtain a teaching job shortly after completion of the program.  With guidance from the programs friendly staff I have reaffirmed that teaching is the correct career path for me and developed and grown as an individual and teacher." -Lindsay O'Neill (ESL/EC-6)

“The Blinn TEACH program is so wonderful!  I loved the PPR class because it gave me so many new ideas.  The people in the program, like Mrs. Tyson, give us a lot of support.  The support that I received helped me with the planning for my classroom.” "I love, love, love this program.  The quality of education that one gets is invaluable.  I have learned so much, and there is always so much support available as a student and as an intern.  The program is run by the best group of educators that one can ever encounter and hope to be like someday.  I am so fortunate to be a part of this great program.  The accelerated path to certification at Blinn is to be commended for their work and the great opportunities that will forever benefit not only me as an individual but the future of our country which are our children.  Thank you so very much for allowing me to fulfill my life long dream of becoming a teacher and please, if anyone is interested or is thinking of becoming a teacher do not hesitate, and do not let anything get in your way.  The great group of wonderful ladies at the TEACH program are there to help you every step of the way."  (Teresa sent in 2 quotes.)

I just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed the Blinn TEACH Program. I feel it has really prepared me for teaching and I still feel so supported during my internship.  Although it is and was a lot of hard work, it is so worth it in the end when you feel prepared and trained to lead a classroom.  It is such a wonderful option for those of us who did not realize their passion or gift until later in life. All of my trainings were so encouraging and truthful and help solidify my decision to become a teacher.  Thanks again for running such a wonderful program.

“Teaching is an eye opening experience for me.  It has revealed all the other duties that a teacher must perform.  Teaching is much more than just presenting a lesson to the students.  The Blinn TEACH program put it all together for me and showed me how to blend the extra duties as well as the presentation of the lessons.”

"I really enjoyed my certification content course.  Not only is it a big help with the test, but it really helps prepare you for the classroom.

The second part of the program, the internship year, is great too because you have someone who as 'been there, done that' working  with you side by side to help you make it through your first year successfully."

“I really liked that my content course was taught by someone who had taught Special Education and had a lot of knowledge and insight on the subject.  I also like the support that I have received during my internship.”

“I originally choose the Blinn TEACH Program for a couple of reasons. I liked the variety of teaching methods used throughout the program. It is comprised of online classes, on campus classes, seminars, field experience, etc. TEACH also has a good reputation in the education community.

Now that I am teaching, I feel that I received a quality education in the fields of ESL and EC-6. The best part of the program thus far has been my TEACH Supervisor; she has proven to be an excellent resource. Not all 1st year teachers can say that they have their very own ‘Teacher Coach’.

Thank you,  Blinn TEACH Program for assisting me in fulfilling my dream of being a Kindergarten Teacher!”

The Special Education course at Blinn College offered for the TEACH program was great preparation for the TExES test as well as for my internship year.  I feel that I was given a good foundation on which to enter my first classroom as well as tons of support from Blinn TEACH staff members and mentors.  Thanks TEACH for making my transition to my own classroom as seamlessly as possible.
