“Our 3rd grade teacher clearly received a fantastic education at the University of Cincinnati. Her lessons are clear and methodical, her interactions with her students are professional yet caring, and her classroom management is impressive. She is a true team player and a true asset to our staff. Thank you for all UC does to develop young adults into future educators of the next generation!”
