TEA Fellows Seminar

Last Thursday, I think many of our lives were changed interacting with the TEA Fellows. These teachers were from all around the world and they shared about their cultures and schools. One teacher stated that the universal theme to teaching is building a relationship with students. If that isn't established, behavior will never be improved. They all also said that American students were so positive and friendly.
