As a middle school scholar at Brooke myself, what I appreciated the most about my teachers is how they were firm, yet warm, leaders who never faltered in their high expectations of me. As an Associate Teacher, I learned how to foster an environment that is safe, productive, and collaborative. Now, my co-teacher and I set the bar high, rolling out daily procedures, academic and behavioral expectations, and building a strong classroom community with our scholars.
