“…I was searching high and low around the internet for suitable videos to use for observation assignments when I happen to stumble across a FaceBook page called California Teacher Preparation…
I learned about teacherprepprogram.org, a website devoted to helping future teachers and
professors of Education courses.
I met amazing, energetic people who let me know I was not alone in facing the challenges of fieldwork observations during a time when schools were closed to visitors.
Many people have spoken about how bad things have gone in 2020,
but this is one thing that went right for me, and I am very grateful for it.”
