“The education department at LSUS prepared me for almost every aspect of teaching. The principal at Youree Drive Middle said she never hires any first year teachers, but hired me because she could tell I was ready to teach after observing me [during my student teaching experience]. I am also very excited to report I received a 3.8 average score in my first formal evaluation – a score usually reserved for teachers with at least five years of experience. I believe this is due to the preparation I received at LSUS.”James Snyder, B.S. in Secondary Education, 2018
