January is National Mentoring Month, and throughout the month, WGU Connection will be highlighting stories of WGU mentors and the students they’ve helped along the way. Today's post features Candis Shupe, a mentor in WGU's online Teachers College.
Through the diverse learning resources and student-centric approach to learning the core subject-matter competencies in each course, WGU students are not just learning – they’re learning how they best learn, and it’s a lesson that sticks with them through life.
One day, you’ll have a classroom of your own. But today, as you work hard toward that career in teaching, substitute teaching is an important way to hone your teaching skills and meet the people you need to know to get hired at the school where you want to work.
Creative, community-oriented, and committed to a brighter tomorrow – one student at a time. Robin Preibisius of Murrieta, California, exemplifies the well-rounded, busy WGU student as she earns her master’s degree in education online.
